    Yeah this could explain why it's taking so long and would definitely tick the box for coolness factor. That could explain the fresh air inlets on the fenders above the wheels.

    As WilliamWally said a couple of pages down it's already being tested on Ford vehicles. :thumbsup:

    Right.
    The last gt500 typically dynoed at 20 to 25hp over and the hellcat usually 30 or sometimes more.

    Anyone else think that the hood bulge could be explained by a hot V turbo setup? You'd think that would do wonders for the packaging.

    I'm a sucker for whine though, give me a twin screw any day.

    It could be just a foam pad to cover up the lines on the hood.

    Keep in mind that manufacturers add on bits to distort the lines of the car to hide the true form. We have also seen this on the GT350.

    Yeah, just a thought.

    The design of the Coyote seems setup from day one to support both supercharging and DI. I'd genuinely be surprised to see anything other than a SC.

    This article from way back in 2010 is pretty illuminating on the subject. And obviously, the aftermarket has done terrific things with supercharging the 5.0. It was born to be FI, even while still being a terrific NA engine.

    Well they were spot on about putting a direct injection application in the Coyote.

    I want to see a twin turbo setup in the next halo Mustang. I really do, but if it is going to be a supercharger application, I will not be that disappointed. With the reveal of the Eaton 2650 TVS, that too is very impressive and superchargers are getting more and more efficient. If they are going to go supercharged however, I do want to see it on a PDI application.

    Are you talking about the V charge SC?

    Did you read the articles or watch the YouTube video? It's not an electric SC. It's essentially a centrifugal SC with variable boost.

    I did not.
    Like what Procharger did with one of their kits when you can adjust boost levels?

    more like a blower with an CVT transmission.

    No way man, if it's got a transmission, it's gotta be manual for me. BS... that CVT garbage.

    You should read it, really good info and could take SC to the next level. I believe Procharger's adjust only per the tune you select. This is variable by the RPM. Which I think would be perfect for these american V8's that make a ton of power/torque down low already in NA form. Sometimes I think that's a flaw for roots SC, they make so much power down low in 1st and 2nd gear it just blows the tires off. If I read it right the computer could control boost through the RPM and I think per gear. So you could have it making lower boost in first but build up through the RPM then max boost around 3rd gear when you know you should have traction.

    I gotcha now. Boost being controlled spread out through the gears throughout the RPM range would be great! Possibly help with traction. lol
    Thanks for the explanation.
