Pressure Ratio Maybe, I saw it on FB early this morning. But the FB feed now shows shit from weeks ago. So who knows. lol I was looking at them again and didn't see them posted here. So I figured I would post up and see what others thought.

Also, they are 295 front & 305 rear.

Mook Arent these pics from yesterday? I feel like Ive already seen these a few times.

Thats all I got to say.

Pressure Ratio OK So today a guy snapped these pictures of it coming off a cargo plane.

Could we actually see a large rotor, multiple piston caliper on the rear of the mustang?

rear set up. Does that look like the white paint marks on the tire show the tire had some movement on the wheel?

Front set up

and a rear view that doesn't show much. Or does it?

That would be cool, and I hope they still bring out a GT500 along side it too.

TCG Member 5219 More GT350 speculation.

Leaked: SVT GT350R Mustang Reveal Coming in September! | Mustang Blog

According to announcers at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway Race broadcast over the weekend, we will see the SVT GT350R sooner than anyone expected! There has been non-stop speculation surrounding Ford’s next Z/28 killer, the GT350R, which really got a lot of momentum when video of it testing at the Nurburgring surfaced. No one doubted that Ford was working on a race-ready Mustang, it was just unsure as to what. In the recent months a much clearer picture has been painted that is not only telling, but quite exciting as well.

How Ford’s Plans For The GT350 Leaked Early
On the August 3rd broadcast of the Indianapolis race, one of the announcers made the comment that, “Multimatic won 3 championships with these Mustangs… and right now what’s in development is that GT350 for next year. We should see that car on the race track later this September.” Without skipping a beat the announcers continued on with their race coverage, completely glazing over the fact that they just leaked the biggest news in racing this year. September 19th is the Continental Tire SportsCar Challenge at the Circuit of the Americas track in Austin, which is the only possible date that they could be referencing.

Here is a link to the broadcast; the comment comes right after the 39 minute mark

Repeat of the BOSS 302 Leak
Normally, it would be easy to dismiss this as just commentator speculation, however, there are two key pieces of information that validate this claim. If we look back to 2010, before a street version of the BOSS 302R was launched, announcers on a SPEED broadcast let slip that the BOSS 302 would launch in mid-August of 2010. In addition to that, announcers at the Continental Tire SportsCar Challenge race at Lime Rock in October of 2013 made a comment that Multimatic was returning to Ford to help develop the next-gen of Mustang race car that we would see around August of 2014.

Not only do the announcers have a history of leaking release date information, but they also hinted last year that we would be seeing the next-gen of Mustang Race Cars around this time. There is too much information here to not trust that we will be seeing a GT350R come this September.

It is exciting to see Multimatic team up with Ford again. Multimatic Motorsports has been working with Aston Martin recently, but before that they were engineering the BOSS 302R for victory in multiple races. We can only imagine what they have planned for the 2015 – 2016 Mustang on the new S550 platform.

Expected Power Output of the GT350R
What we are still waiting on hearing is the exact specs of this next generation of SVT Mustang. Although we know the GT350R will have a Voodoo engine, we have yet to confirm if it will have a flat-plane crankshaft and what the exact displacement of the engine will be. However, after the power ratings for the 2015 Mustang line up have been released there has been some strong arguments made as to what we can expect from the GT350 platform.

For starters we can expect a 5.0L sourced engine, but with slightly larger displacement. A lot of rumblings in the Ford community have consistently pointed to a 5.2L engine, better recognized as the Voodoo engine, which is incredibly intriguing.

There has been a 50/50 split on the idea of it having forced induction, with some even speculating about a Turbo setup, which would not be all that odd considering Ford’s push on EcoBoost Technology. The most interesting and consistent piece of information that everyone seems to be talking about is the GT350 having a flat-plane crankshaft. Regardless of the different opinions multiple media outlets, enthusiasts, and insiders have, they all seem to agree that there will be a flat-plane crankshaft in the 5.0 sourced engine, allowing for a higher redline and faster revving.

Forced Induction or not, there has been an unwavering claim from various insiders that 500+ horsepower is expected from this setup, with some claiming 550+, but we will have to wait for some dyno numbers. With a base GT putting down 435HP, it would be no problem at all to see much higher numbers from a GT350R variant.

Never has a Mustang seemed to have generated such a speculation craze as this GT350 model, but for good reason. With the redesign of the Mustang and Ford’s adoption of new power plants(2.3L turbo 4 cylinder engines) and drivetrains(IRS) for theS550 Mustang, there is a strong need for a halo model; one that we can watch win races on Sunday and then drive to work in on Monday.

TCG Member 5219 Seeing as how me getting another corvette once my mustang is paid off is still probably not in the cards, as long as this new SVT car has back seats it will likely be my next car.

With a number of 2015 Ford Mustang versions finally available to configure, the fun of speculating about next year's high-performance 'Stang can now begin. It looks like Ford has something seriously fun planned too. One of our spy photographers just snapped some fresh pics of the 2016 Mustang SVT, which is believed to be hiding the final body shape under all of that heavy camouflage.

Ford clearly doesn't want prying eyes looking at its new pride and joy. It would be hard to put much more obfuscation on a car than this one wears – it even has mesh baffles around the exhausts to conceal how many there are and panels over the wheels to hide their design. However, the Blue Oval can't keep everything a secret. The biggest clue that something special is hidden underneath is the massive hood bulge and vent in front of it. Clearly, whatever is under there is hungry for cool air. The shape of the camo indicates that there may be fender vents on each side, and there are also obscured outlets behind the front wheels likely to pull cool air through the brakes. At the rear, the concealment does its job, making it hard to observe any big changes. The fact that Ford wants it kept such a secret might indicate something, though.

A few photos of the interior show far less cover than the outside. You can easily make out the model's 6,500 rpm redline with a possible 7,000 rpm over-rev function. The big Recaro sport seats also look quite supportive.

The name of the new high-performance Mustang is still somewhat of a mystery. While SVT is developing the model, it's reportedly called simply the GT350. Until Ford decides that the camo is less necessary, at least these spy shots can help build more anticipation for its top pony car.

Chester Copperpot I think an entire LS longblock is literally one head of @Eagle's 5.8.

Mook Two photoshops of what the car could look like.

Chevrolet Camaro SS 1LE, Chevrolet Camaro Z/28, other Chevrolet Camaros, Dodge Challenger SRT, a used Boss 302.

Yea I could totally see that....

GM has mastered the push rod engine.

I'm all about simple and you can't get any more simple than a LS. No egr, iac, and so on. Early models had egr and what not but not anymore.

Hey GM has a fine system going. The engine design is fantastic, and the OHV design allows the motors to run very effeciently, as opposed to the Fords more complex motors, because of that lower rotational mass. I love the simplicity of GMs V8's, they are still able to be relevant all of these years later, while nearly every other manufacturer has gone OHC.

On the other hand, you have to respect the the abilities of the Coyote motor and if the rumors are true, the Voodoo motor.

Unfortunately has a huge Ford swinger, if I had to choose a motor to base my next project around, it would have to be an LS motor. As you've mentioned, many people are able to match the power it creates, but no one can really match the packaging size and weight of which the LS does it.
