    1. No idea and 2. I thought the GS has coolers? I do not know of any of the GS's faults, I would like one because it is an NA road course monster, especially with the Z07 package. I bleed blue and know little about Corvette's other than appreciate their performance and looks.

    I could be wrong. I may be thinking of the Z06.

    The Z had the cooling issues because of the supercharger, that I do know.

    this is pretty much the power level of my ex LS3 corvette with full exhaust, intake and tune. that is an exciting 'starting point' for a car. glad to see good results :)

    Exactly!
    Mustang is way easier on the eyes.
    Just wish it was easier on the wallet to get SS 1LE performance w a track use warranty.

    You mean SS 1LE?
    ZL1 is the recently announced 750 hp insanity monster that handles and puts power down...
    lol.. bunker... +1

    Yea I got a call back from same dealer that offered the 1SS 1LE at $43k otd.
    Freakn $56k C7 GS... ~$60k otd...
    Chevy is bringing its A game in the price/performance arena.
    Everyone here is familiar with the Grand Sport track capabilities? They are stout and at par +/- 911 GT3 RS depending on higher or lower speed track.

    To be replaced by the GT500.

    I wasn't comparing the GT350 to the 1LE. I was simply referring to the pecking order in the Mustang family. Ford will not want to step on the heels of the Shelby as long as it's in production, hence possible under-rating of the HP numbers. Not saying it's actually happening.

    The ZL1 has been out since like 2013. The 1st gen makes 580.

    Ahhh, got it...
    I was not counting the previous generations or anything that can not survive a 20 minute session in 95F Texas summer. I have seen several cars crap out to limp in Texas: (2 )ZL1 (previous gens), EVO MR, (2) GT350 Tech pack, Jag F R
    Its hard to express tone in a post, but to summarize:
    I am sad I can not get Mustang looks with 1SS 1LE performance, trackable warranty, and $42,xxx Out The Door price.
    This is in the context of tracking a Mustang this past year and realizing that going anything further than "entertaining" track use and moving into serious TT competitive is more financially biased toward Chevy currently. Any time and money spent on suspension is hard to recover compared to the a 1SS 1LE or a C7GS.
    Dont get me wrong, the Stang is fun as all get out roll racing on the street with the Whipple, especially debadged with an eco boost trunk.

    Would love to tweak this motor old school style.
    Bench flow as many heads as possible and pick the highest/best matched set.
    Index the plugs.
    Bench test several intakes and pick the best flowing.
    Measure the cams and use the ones closest to spec.
    Flow test all the injectors. Pick the highest and best matched.
    Bench test a bunch of factory air filters. Pick the highest flowing.
    Test the O2 sensors and such.......
    Much of this I learned with the original 5.0 all the way back in '87.
    Wonder how much hp could be gained?

    Impossible the 2018 made 430hp with the same intake as the 2015-2017s

    The stock intake is very capable and absolutely fine, CAI's do very little for the S550.

    The stock intake box on the gen 3 Coyote is not the same as last years. (w/higher compression ratio and two new fuel injection systems). So, I doubt anyone except Ford Racing/Roush to have any type of CAI engineered/designed for the new engine/bay. Additionally, the environment plays a massive role, just not SAE stuff.

    Obviously, not every dyno station tests with the same amount of "pressured air" thus, slightly different results as it starves the airbox. A car is designed to be moving forward as it runs. Not all dynometers facilities are created equal. I once overheard (& listened) to Jim Conforti speak of this in detail, at BMW event eons ago.

    Plus, nobody really cares about the actual dyno #s, just what kind of plots did they get. (ie: dyno to dyno comparisons don't have much meaning, other than their plot.)

    It is very similar and the 15-17 panel filters fit fine. :)
