    I like watching his stuff. But when you blow off an engineer on limitations you have lost your marbles. Can you Boost the voodoo? Sure. Should you? Depends on the individual. Now, let's talk track reliability.....

    The answer is no. But I enjoy watching people try. Most have no idea how much went into making that engine (pretty) reliable and not make itself and everything mounted to it fall apart.

    You want a boosted car? Wait for the GT500 or boost a GT.

    Coming from a 750whp hellcat the Shelby has very good power.

    I did not realize that my car was "severely underpowered". Haha....

    I doubt that a supercharged GT350 would get around a track any quicker than a NA version, and that is the point of the car.

    IMO it's better (smarter; wiser; more fun; more rewarding) to work on driver-mod than voodoo-mod.

    But hey... supercharging and the return of turbocharging is the rage & obsession these days. So to each their own of ocurse.

    I think his perspective is from a person that doesn't drive the car on the road course. It's a lot different driving the GT350 around in traffic obeying speed limits versus when the car is opened up on the road course.

    Very few cars pull away from me on the track with any real gusto. ZO6s pull but not as badly as you would think. Nothing a draft from being on their ass wont fix :D:D

    You won't snap the crank. A bearing will fail...caveat emptor

    I'll be honest I've kinda gotten used to the power. Not in a bad way but I know my limitation. I think 600 crank would be awesome for me right now.

    Agreed. I agree with Alex and at the same time I don't. I also don't want another 125 or so lbs on the nose of the car.

    I would rather try and make the car 200lbs lighter =faster and even less stress and better reliability.

    there is plenty of unlockable power for this motor w/ out adding turbos or a supercharger. Frankenstein Engine Dynamics will soon be releasing heads that flow at 405 cfm along with custom cams and a billet Intake manifold (there is someone on the forum that is testing the products with them). And Long tubes, e85 w/ a tune alone will give you 520+ rwhp which is about 590ish Crank hp. I think it’d be awesome to see someone work with Borla Induction and put some ITB’s on it too.. with all these mods you’re looking at a 630+ rwhp NA Voodoo without a doubt

    Spending $10,000 on a 75 crank HP increase is not exactly a great investment in my mind. I'm waiting to see what FED's heads do as I personally don't want to go long tubes because of sound restriction issues for my motorsports events and tracks. But I'm guessing those will be pretty pricey too.

    I already have a more capable track car. I would love to own a boosted gt350 for the street. IMO the gt350 is a heavy car for the track.
    Would love to own that awesome sounding beast and boost it to smoke everything under the sun.

    Always go to the internet (especially YouTube) for technical data. Ford Powertrain engineers have no clue and never test anything.

    Crikey.

    Yeah it would be crazy money but I think there might be a NA lover out there that’ll do it eventually. Heck if I had that kind of money I would.
