This new car reviews from autonews, To eke out of the Mustang GT’s engine a bonus thirty two horses, Ford created a brand new intake manifold with runners resembling velocity stacks. totally different cylinder heads were deployed—stronger alloy and altered ports—with every head undergoing a pair of.5 hours of CNC massaging. The camshafts supply increased elevate, the intake valves are larger, the bearings are race-spec, and therefore the baffled pan holds eight.5 quarts of artificial oil.

The result's 444 horsepower at 7500 rpm, a cheerful medium between the Mustang GT’s 412 horses and therefore the Shelby GT500’s 550. The Boss’s V-8—unlike the brutish Shelby’s—doesn’t therefore typically overwhelm its chassis. In fact, what you initially notice—and this can be terribly BMW-ish—is that the Boss’s engine, driveline, and suspension draw just about no attention to every others’ eccentricities. It lends the package a gratifying sense of unity that conjures up confidence.
