    I'm looking forward to seeing what you all come up with for the 5.0. I'm also interested to see if the stock clutch can take it. It seems a few clutches in the new 5.0 have gone up already.

    More info as it becomes available...I promise.
    If making this engine live is the difference between a centri' and a twin screw I think I would pass on boosting it.

    This is true,
    About the vest anyway ;) besides did you know that every 03/04 Cobra manufactured had a trace if Chuck Norris blood in it ? Ford decided not to do this for he GT500 for fear that it would be an "unfair advantage" over the ZR1. Apparently there was a slip and it made it's way into the 2011 GT blue prints.

    I agree.

    I am currently sitting here with my 2007 GT that has a Whipple on it tuned by VMP. It has been an extremely reliable car putting down 495+ HP at 6,000 RPM on three different dynos at various times. It currently has about 26,000 miles on it. I am patiently waiting to see what happens when these various power adder manufacturers start putting their products on this engine.

    I don't expect it to take 12 PSI. I would hope it could take 5-8 PSI all day long in stock form from various power adders. If it does I will likely pull the trigger on one. If not I guess I will need to save a few pennies more and buy a GT500.

    Why juice it haha? From what I've seen so far, these cars can easily go 11's N/A with bolt on's and 10's N/A with the right suspension/tire/wheel setup, weight reduction, and somewhat minimal performance modifications(CAI/Tune/Gears/Catback/LT's). The average driver IMO will probably need more performance mods than that to pull 10's N/A off though.

    To show how fast these cars are, a guy already pulled 11.78 @ 117 MPH with only LCA's/UCA, Panhard Bar, tune, and weld 15'' wheels, QA1 rear shocks, and slicks/skinnies. Imagine his times after adding a CAI, LT's, and gears, would be pretty sick.
