I think i may try a turbo

My friend put a procharger on his 5.0 and we ran @ the track.(1/8 mile) He got me by 2 sec. and I want to line up with a different forced injection system to spank his ***:-p

What is his full setup besides procharger? Auto/manual? I run 6.7's at 103 with 620whp I'm at 713whp now. PAXTON FTW!

Wow 2 whole seconds in just an 1/8 mile? Lol that is a big difference. Was he on drag wheels and tires? What other mods? Cause with just a bolt on Procharger kit he shouldn't even put 2 whole seconds on you in a 1/4 mile.

Re: I think i may try a turbo

if you go with a turbo go with a GOOD brand, spend the money up front vs spend it after the fact with a cheap kit~ your choice.... but you get what you pay for.

Also consider the initial investment will always be more than you think, little things come up, and also consider the overall cost vs selling/buying a GT500 or the like. Not only initially but the depreciation of mods is VERY bad vs buying another car, lightly modding it and getting better results AND Retaining value.

a turbo 5.0 will demolish a lightly even heavily modded gt500. i am going turbo also and im gojng with the hellion kit my buddy has ine and it is amazing he has the 67mm single. and i will be going with the 76mm single. all the bad reviews arent true it is a bad *** kit

the hellion kit really is a good kit And will make your car fast not just a dyno queen. the basic complete kit can be had for 5,900. which is the one my buddy has put down 550 at 7psi and 525 tq. he is jumping it up to 10psi this month

Yeah... I don't think I would turbo a 5.0 if for similar money I.could sell and get a gt500... I've seen 2011 gt500s for 44000 with just 10k km on them. And a pulley swap with tune can easily get u past 600 whp. And it will hold its value much better than the gt. A moderately modded gt500 will still be faster than a heavily modded 5.0 unless you teardown the engine.

no way. the 5.0 will tear up a gt500. bolton 5.0 have beat gt500's

I raped pulled tune GT500's and I don't have 44k invested in my whole car yet. I also spanked a few 650whp GT500 when I was at 630whp. Weight to power means a lot.

Was that just a Pulley swap to jump to that power?

But then your talking modified vs stock... and that game doesn't hold up especially when you add boost to the equation. The shelby bottom end is far superior and will take way more boost than the 5.0. Saw a 2008 shelby gt500 for 27k today... I'm very tempted.

Combo of things. Aluminum driveshaft, more timing, pulled intake gains 1.5lb boost, no cats,

I've seen that vid and I've seen several posts claiming that car was not a stock bottom end. If it is, then its on death row. It wont last. I assume these builds are for cars that will get street use aand are expected to last. Sure u can screw that power out of it but for how long? The shelby bottom end will take those power levels a lot longer. If you want to take it personally go ahead. I love the new 302. Its a great engine. I just don't think the 5.0 in the gt is built for it. The boss 302 spec engine is another beast.

15-20,000 miles isn't a while. The Shelby motor will last into the hundreds.

Stock maybe, but so was my 5,0 stock. Add some better wheels and tires and a few suspension upgrades and your still only at 45k and you have a car with a built motor and ready for high boost.

Being nose heavy is the gt500s only flaw besides having traction issues in stock form. But with a tube k-member you can shave some pounds off the nose. But with some boost the coyote comes alive, I have driven bolt on gt500s and a whippled 5.0 and i'll tell you that I think the 5.0 was faster you can feel the shelby is heavy.
