It amazes me the number of people who think direct injection is a magic bullet. Reports say that Ford was not impressed by what DI added, and found better alternatives. I think that a more important modification is the prospect of lasers replacing spark plugs. With DI, they will be able to make significant performance gains with huge fuel economy improvement.

Power gains with the 5.0 is going to be moderate, using cams, intake manifolds, and bigger valves. Nothing sexy, just tweaks. The GT350 will get its mojo from turbochargers. The Mach 1 and others will probably get some minor boost, but they are close to the limit on N/A engines. Major increases will be from a blower of some type, and the Shelbys are always going to be given the best, so at best, we may only hope for matching the GT350s.

Ford has already published that the 15 will be 200 lbs lighter (aluminum front fenders)...not 450...which I think will be offset by the IRS...direct injection may add power, but you need low end torque to improve 0-60 times...power is what you need for 1/4 mile...the GT500 had 662 (supercharged) hp...I don't see how on earth a N/A GT with 450 or even 475 hp (as you stated) will be able to come remotely close to the numbers the GT500 produced...whatever Ford replaces the GT500 with, will definitely match it's performance...but that car will not be a Mustang GT....

You really think the new GT will pound out a sub 4 0-60 with small 245 tires out back. The 662hp 14' GT500 did 3.5 0-60 with much larger tires.

The 13' GT500 with 550 did 4 flat to 60.

Like I said before your numbers are all over the place. I will agree it will be faster than the 13'-14' but not sub 4sec. It will need at least 285's if not 305's out back to even think about sub 4.

The 2013 GT 500 did NOT make 550 HP what planet are you from it made
662 Hp with the 5.8 , I think you may be referring to the 2012 GT500
which made 550Hp yes , with that being said 550 hp running 4's flat at 3850
pds let's reduce that weight with the 2015/16 GT by a few hundred pounds
and run 450-475 Hp we can then see that 4's flat is possible. With launch
control of course and good tires.

You need to stop making a fool of yourself. It's good to see you back tracked once again in saying it can run 4 flat and not sub 4... What your not beefing it up to the sub 4 anymore??? I still think 4 flat could be tough. Heres why...

The new 2014 stingray Z51 base Vette has 460hp, weighs 3300 pounds, has launch control and 285 tires out back and can run 3.9 sec. 0-60 (mfg. est.) Edmund.com tested it and ran 4.3 0-60.

After knowing what the new Vette has for technology. You are still set at 4.0 or sub 4 0-60 for a new GT Mustang that will have about the same power will weigh more and be running on probably skinnier tires like 245's.

Keep dreaming bro!

Granted the Edmunds driver probably in not the best but i'm sure he knows what he is doing and even if chevy's estimate is right at 3.9... You still think a heavier car with about the same power on skinnier tires will run side by side with the base Stingray. If so you are delusional.

CASE CLOSED!!!

@dobypaw3, gladiatoro seems like he's trolling...all the specs you listed about the Vette are what he thinks the 15 GT is going to have...you me and most ppl in the forum seem realistic and can--in most cases--back up our speculation with logic...with all respect to him, it doesn't seem he has much of it...wasting our time...

I think you are the one who is delusional first you say the 2013 GT500 makes 550 Hp WRONG ..... and now you think a 475 hp Mustang with smilar weight cannot poduce similar 0 to 60 times ok it may weigh 100 to 200 pounds more and I said a direct injected version with 475+ hp whenever that is available , and how do you know the GT will come with 245's , you have no idea what the tire options will be it wouldn't surpise me if one can get 20" rims stock as an option , times
have changed and bigger tires and rims are the norm now... with that being said low 4's are possible like I said.

NOW IT'S CASE CLOSED.

I'm confused by your post by because you're all over the place quoting GT500 accelerations and then comparing the GT500's curb weight to the GT' s proposed 200lb weight saving but really meaning the GT's 400lb advantage based on the GT500.

Then you say DI and then jumping to a supercharger and intercooler. Are you talking about the new GT or are you talking about the proposed Mach I or Cobra?

A GT will not have a supercharger and will not reach anywhere near 656hp with or without direct injection.

Every 100lbs of weight saved equals about .1s savings in the quarter mile. So you're looking at best 4.1s + 20hp = maybe 4.0s in the 0-60 stock on street tires.

So a 3450lb 440-450HP GT non supercharged would maybe do 4.0s and 12.5s quarter mile.

Direct injection with 475hp might do 3.9s and 12.4 quarter mile.

How the hell is a 475hp (crank) GT gonna do 11.99s? You would need at least 525-550hp to do about a 12s straight quarter.

A GT will NOT come with a supercharger and if you think a 475 crank HP GT will pull an 11.99s or better in the quarter... You're delusional.

Alright you win. I learned never to argue with the delusional.

To be fair it won't have 245s in the back. Look for 265s probably

And if ur gonna say well the base GT has 245s well I guess ur right but that's like saying you're gonna use the 50 yard dash time the athlete ran but instead of using the time he ran in running shoes you're going to use the time he ran in his Nike walking shoes.

You always test with the best made available.

Yes finally someone agrees 4.0 flat like I said but I had higher hp numbers
stock 450-475 with direct injection .....


Ok sub 12's is a bit optimistic but NOT FAR OFF.

And the supercharged GT if you read my post is what I will be doing once I buy a direct injected 475 Hp + GT what ever model year that will be likely 2016 but possibly 2015 with that being said 475 +40 percent gain from a BLOWER =
670 Hp really simple numbers .... so then I will have a lighter mustang
than the gt 500 and similar HP , in other words a GT 500 2013-14 KILLER.

I just realized that what u meant by saying that if u add a LARGE SUPERCHARGER/INTERCOOLER u meant aftermarket.

Well why stop there? Why not add a warp engine powered by dilithium crystals with a 500 shot of Dark Matter/Anti-matter matrix blend?

That will definitely put your acceleration into the next dimension.

We're talking stock for stock correct?

I was comparing the 2013-14 GT 500 to my future supercharged GT
that's all yes aftermarket , Paxton , E-force , what ever the supercharger may be
for the New Mustang with the highest gain , most will give 40% gains nowadays
with that being said a person could build a gt500 killer for tens of thousands less
, again my point. From what I have been reading the gt 500 Shelby is done this model year and no plans to re introduce it also the 5.8 l will not fit into the new body / chassis of the S550.

You're done posting on anything regarding the 2015 GT acceleration times and **** cuz you went from sub 4s 0-60mph and 11s quarters on a 475hp GT to now an aftermarket supercharged GT...

Good bye

Yes you have that is if the point you're trying to make is that you are one misinformed and informationally disorganized young boy.

You should have started off with "my tooth faerie and Santa Clause will gift to me a bottle of magical unicorn piss that I will use in place of motor oil and it will make my new 2015 GT into the fastest and most coolest looking car outside of Narnia!"

You should have started off with "my tooth faerie and Santa Clause will gift to me a bottle of magical unicorn piss that I will use in place of motor oil and it will make my new 2015 GT into the fastest and most coolest looking car outside of Narnia!"



Speak for yourself my 2015/16 S550 GT will be fast as HELL no doubt SUPERCHARGED and pushing around 700 HP , FACT..... she will sit nice in my garage next to my 560 HP SUPERCHARGED S197 GT .

stock 450-475 with direct injection .....

Ok sub 12's is a bit optimistic but NOT FAR OFF.

And the supercharged GT if you read my post is what I will be doing once I buy a direct injected 475 Hp + GT what ever model year that will be likely 2016 but possibly 2015 with that being said 475 +40 percent gain from a BLOWER =
670 Hp really simple numbers .... so then I will have a lighter mustang
than the gt 500 and similar HP , in other words a GT 500 2013-14 KILLER.

Shut up your original post you said 3's 0-60 and 11's in the quarter. You have back tracked so many times. In fact i will requote your idiotic post. As for my post stating the 13' had 550hp. That was a typo. I type on my iPhone and the auto spell does not correct numbers. The key pad is small and my fingers are big. But if the 13' GT500 is the only discrepancy on my part. That proves it's a mistake in my typing. You on the other hand have changed your numbers and story multiple times. Also everything I state is either fact or I give estimates. I never commit to a number if I do not know it is true. Un like you. You should change tour name to...

that being said it would be GREAT to have a 35 k 2015 GT if that is the price I will be one of the first to buy this car , with such power and light weight
it's a no - brainer.... 0 to 60 should be in
3.s range , 1/4 mile times in the 11's STOCK that is AMAZING , then imagine
adding a SUPERCHARGER to this BEAST.....
Here is Gladiatroll's original post to me about the performance he thinks the new GT will do. He has back track so many times he doesn't even know what up or down.

, remember power to weight ratio and the 2015 has that in spades...
Here was his first back track. Were in his first post did he say 4's or with slicks? Yeah that right Gladiatroll. Back tracking is your game.

only if the 2015 is DIRECT INJECTED with that being said the numbers I predict may not materialize until the 2016 model year .
Here he back tracks to a wider range of numbers and adds the 2016. Gladiatroll stop your so wrong.

There are a lot of people that make noise about what a car can and cannot do, without any understanding of engineering. Most of them work in Washington, D.C. Any genuine racer will tell you that it is very much a multi faceted task, not just putting the biggest blower available on the engine. You not only have to make the HP, but control it without something breaking. Ford and GM have some very smart engineers, and just adding parts is not going to produce miracle results.

Too many conjectures going on here... Let's just take a breather... relax... woo-sah... woo-sah...

I think we need to wait and see more info. We don't know what the tire spec's will be for the GT, but someone at a launch event did note that the gloss black 19" wheels were shod with 275's out back(255's in front).

I'm not expecting miracles. My present ride is a beast of a car! I absolutely enjoy driving her on a daily basis. I don't need much more in terms of power, but if they are offering more I will gladly take it. If they are throwing more electronics/tech into the car, I'll definitely want that! What I'm looking out for is how has the ride quality improved with the new suspension. Does it handle significantly better than the present? Does it brake any better?

In terms of the S550's exterior, overall dimensions seem close to the present... it's a little lower and wider, but the length is about the same(so is the wheelbase). Wheel gaps seem much more respectable(thanks!!!). Needless to say, the look grew on me by the minute. They kept just enough styling cues for me to know it is a Mustang. The interior, on the other hand, caught me way off guard... they knocked it out the park! I thought that the 2010-2014's 'stang interiors were better than the Camaro's... now, the Bow-Tie has some serious work ahead of them in that department!

You are correct sir . But adding a BLOWER will no doubt increase HP and from
what I have read the S550 has a beefed up drivetrain and forged motor parts
that being said adding HIGH HP via a SUPERCHARGER should not be a problem at all , the s550 should have no problems running 600 +RWHP with
a stock drivetrain.

The S550 has grown on me as well she is a beauty ALL new from the ground up
and it seems the engineers did a hell of a job on it , like I said 19's and even
20's will be offered and wider tires no doubt to handle the HP increase of the updated and improved 5.0 .[COLOR="Silver"] plus the new interior is light years ahead of
the old.... welcome to the new gen mustang.

People arguing about cars are almost as cool as people arguing about video games.

2015 Ford Mustang GT Photo Gallery - Autoblog

255/40/ZR19's are clearly shown as stock GT equipment on one of these pictures that being the front the rear is likely 285-295 as I thought...
20's are likely available too from the factory order sheet.
