so I can get it to fit in the booger. :rotf:

I would just love to have this engine in my car...................


The Ford Shelby GT500's supercharged 5.4-liter, 32-valve V-8 is a result of Ford's experience in developing the modular V-8 and V-10 engine series. The engine is force-fed air via a "Roots-type" supercharger providing 9 pounds per square inch of boost. It borrows the four-valve cylinder heads, piston rings and bearings, from the Ford GT engine.

500 horsepower and 480 lb.-ft. of torque. :D

No problem...

Cowl hood... re-routed cold air and filter box...

Think Y2K-R + blower...

It would be cheaper to build your own...

Junk yard Navigator motor...(heads, block and crank are kick A$$!!!)
Ditch the rods and pistons... buy forged ones
Ditch the intake...

Then either buy an 07 supercharger lower intake and all the intercooler stuff....


Buy a Sullivan intake... and hang a turbo or two on there...

Not exactly plug and play but definately do-able...
Turbo set up... would probably be a little more that a crate motor 07.... But by the time you bought all the intercooler stuff(pump, lines, core, H/E, relays, engine management, etc)...

The Turbo should come in less money... with more power... and better rods and pistons.... Better durability!!!

You would then probably want to get a Viper spec T56...
and some better axles...

You Dawg. Should of know you would put more wood on the fire. :thumbsup:
I may have to work on the numbers and see what I will need to save up $,
to get started building the engine.
Love to have something like it in the next coupe years.:cool:

What a sleeper it would be;
I could tell people,,,, it's just a 2V mustang engine w/blower. ;)
Want to race? :p

IT WOULD BE SICK!!!Yes it would! :D

That turbo combo could be tuned to make an easy 1100rwhp... assuming you have the fuel delivery mods...

Take a look at the drag car and engine Al Pappito has built...

5.4 N/A... 556rwhp SAE..

Some interesting info on this page...

Please note there is some MIS-information on here also... let me know if you need clarification...
For example "All DOHC Exhaust Ports
48mm x 25mm"........... not true...

But overall a pretty good write up...

Here is the "Billy Bad A$$" intake they make!!! :thumbsup:



Or run a tumble port Mach1, or N/A 99/01 Cobra 4.6 intake on a 5.4 block!!!!
With these adapter plates :thumbsup:
