    Found this and it hasn’t been posted yet but motor trend had a 2019 gt350 exact same spec as mine currently and it put down 495hp to the wheels consistently

    https://www.motortrend.com/news/2019-ford-mustang-shelby-gt350-dyno-results/

    It Makes How Much? We Dyno the 2019 Ford Mustang Shelby GT350
    Voodoo V-8 spins some impressive numbers

    In the 2019 GT350 and GT350R, the Voodoo is rated at 526 horsepower and 429 lb-ft of torque at the crank. We decided to take the GT350 from our Best Driver's Car competition and strap it to a dyno to find out how much power it's making at the wheels. Drivetrain losses are exceedingly difficult to measure but we'll estimate a 15-percent loss between what the engine is producing at the crank and how much power makes it to the road. Based on Ford's numbers, we should be expecting a dyno readout of 447 hp and 366 lb-ft of torque at the wheels.

    Last time we measured a GT350 on a dyno in 2015, it put down a very healthy 467 wheel horsepower. This one is even stronger. Here's what the dyno tells us: an average of 494 hp and 382 lb-ft at the wheels over three separate runs in fourth gear. Accounting for the drivetrain loss, our results translate to 581 horses and 449 lb-ft at the crank from the Voodoo V-8; that's 55 hp and 20 extra lb-ft more than its ratings from Ford.

    The dyno chart, which graphs power and torque against engine speed, shows a big spike in torque for the Mustang around 3,300 rpm. That's when this engine comes alive—much later in the rev range than most turbocharged engines and larger-displacement V-8s. Torque remains near its peak at 382 lb-ft between 3,300 and 6,000 rpm, at which point it begins to drop off. The power curve is relatively linear. Peak power doesn't arrive until the Voodoo is approaching its sky-high 8,250-rpm fuel cutoff.

    If our tester is any indication, you not only get one of the best-sounding engines in the business with the 2019 Ford Mustang Shelby GT350, you also get more power than advertised.

    Just read this. I recently upgraded from a 16 Base to a fully loaded 19. I’ve sworn all along that the car feels and sounds different (louder/quicker). Interesting findings here. Love it!

    I still have a 2016 but with a 2019 motor. The engine revs faster than the old motor, but I figured it was probably just updating throttle mapping. Maybe not, but it's hard to believe such a huge hp jump especially with NA motors. Hopefully more people will dyno their 2019 cars to help prove MT's #'s.

    Lighter wheels and cup 2s will do that.

    This was posted by @Bcobb85 in another thread this was mentioned in. According to the dyno operators:

    Too bad the car wasn’t Performance Blue. That adds another +15hp right there....:crackup:

    What’s a dyno typically cost? Maybe I’ll go get mine done before I start modding, to get a baseline and to test the numbers in this article.

    Should find a good tune shop in your area w/ dyno google search "dyno tuning".
    Typically $75 perhaps even less.

    hopefully 2020 gt500 is underrated like the 03 04 cobras and these new voodoos are

    I’ll call around this week. For $75, I’ll def get one done and will report the results here when I do. I’m at 750 ish miles now. Once I hit 1000, it’s on. Shouldn’t take long, as I’m daily-ing her while the weather is awesome.

    About to go wash her now, then plan to post up some pics in the new owners thread!

    I have a 17 with a 19 motor as well. The car does feel better when it rev's out, I thought it was just the butt dyno. Maybe not now..

    Not to be "that guy" but we need more 19's to dyno. I have no doubt that the 19's do pick up a little more HP from previous years but 495 RWHP is extremely fantastic for a stock N/A 5.2L Voodoo. Way too many 5.2 Voodoos out there running E85 with JLT Intake and Lund tunes making around that number. Heck, full ARH exhaust, JLT, Tune is only about a 30 rwhp gain. So, having a hard time buying this magazines stock motor numbers.

    The dyno could be off but they already ran a previous model year GT350 and gave the numbers I don’t see why they would have any incentive to lie and bump the numbers up knowing it’s the same engine

    Once again, this has already been explained. The previous GT350 was put on a dyno outside of the environment at World Motorsports. The 2019 was put in this new environment where they make more power, as the owners of the dyno explain.

    I doubt this car is making 495whp, Ford didn’t do any major changes to account for the whp increase. I don’t doubt that they've gotten the CNC program and the guys on the line making the engine have nailed down the engines build over the last couple of years. But to go from 467whp to 495whp and we Ford didn’t change cams, compression, intake manifold

    yeah okay

    Read this as well and like most here, I dont put a lot of stock in dynos. But, My 19R, with aftermarket aluminum wheels weighing in at the stock weights feel much faster then my 16. I wrote it off to imagination now, Im not sure of that

    One thing I just thought about now, aren't the '19+ heads the same flow rates as the GT500? The guys who have ported their 16 - 18 stock heads have seen some very real power gains. @honeybadger 's 545 RWHP dyno pull didn't come from a throttle body spacer......
