    Not likely, but we can dream.

    The Bullitt and normal 18+ GT are much closer than the published numbers (underrated, and real world backed up by many stock dynos at 415-425 whp). The GT350 manifold really doesn't make any more power than the 18 manifold unless there are higher rpm cams added. They chose not to do that with the Bullitt and thus keep the same redline as the 18+ GT, for cost reasons. 60+ more hp out of the 5.0L is optimistic for something that would meet durability cycles and emissions. Maybe 20-30 more. They've already thrown the sink at it, for the most part.

    A nice round 500hp would be pretty cool :sunglasses:

    (although sad to think the Coyote might be almost at the end of its development life-cycle :frown: )

    Saleen S-7 was and is powered by a 7 Liter Windsor (351 Based).
    The 351 was a truck motor for the most part.

    The 7.3 fits just fine......measurements have already been taken.

    For the history buffs.....The 1st Gen GT40 was push rod powered.
    Most iconic version was the 427 FE.

    A 7 Liter Mustang would sell like mad if Ford would not market it as a track car.
    Chevy made that mistake and Mopar did not with the Demon.
    Mopar may be releasing a 426 Hemi into production....the hints are there.

    Now back on topic, 5.2 CPC would be my guess........
    But could be the Bullit version of the 5.0 marketed as the Mach1 or whatever......

    Not to sound like a broken record, but it's time for a engine platform change.

    Truck version of the 5.0 is going to be very complex very soon........<<<<<<Wish I could openly talk about that.

    Key word is based. Not a single part on the S7 motor was actually used in a 351 Windsor. If ford swapped out most of the parts on the 7.3, it could be a higher performance engine, but it being a motor that isn't even in production yet, and the 351 Windsor having several decades of factory and aftermarket development at the time the S7 was developed... you can see where I'm going with this.

    We would be talking about a 7.3L that is essentially a new and completely different engine from the one that is slated for medium duty trucks. That could very well perform, but I seriously doubt Ford would invest the money for a limited production application.

    If the person "in the know" says we're looking too much into it, then maybe Ford is just copying Dodge and making a Mustang Widebody? It could be a cooler way to differentiate the PP2 and give it more visual appeal. Also, the Bullitt will end after the 2020 model year. So for MY2021, I doubt they'll let those engine tweaks go away. Chances are it just ends up being the new GT motor, but it could go into something like a Mach 1 instead, which could be what we're seeing here.

    Whatever this winds up being, could we be at the last 2-3 years of the s550? The 13-14 MYs had a ton of special editions to get them off the lot before the s550 arrived.

    I think Ford is taking a page from Chevrolet with the grand sport where you get the big brakes, wide fenders, wide wheels and tires and all the higher end suspension bits from the high end models but with the standard run of the mile V8 for power and standard manual transmission. That way you have the look of the high horsepower model but the affordability of a lesser horsepower model.

    2020 Mustang GT PP2 is my guess as well.

    Is it just me or are the rear arches flared too? The 350 and pp2 poke visibly at the back. This doesn’t . If the front was flared and the rear wasn’t it would be out of balance and This looks well balanced

    Just took a second look. Call me crazy, but I think you may be right.
