Ford Racing Performance Packs

Is this new?

Today was the first time I've seen it...

M-9452-M8 - Power Pack 3 (shipping by 10-31-16) :
  • GT350 Cold Air Intake
  • GT350 Throttle body
  • GT350 Intake Manifold - part # M-9424-M52
  • Ford Racing Tune - part # M-9603-M8A

+ 37hp peak
+ 60hp at 7500 rpm - (does this mean 495hp if you raise rev limiter?

Interesting... though expensive @ $2,395.00 MSRP

I may get the Power Pack 1. I've always been a fan of the OEM tunes.

Yes they are new and they are receiving a lot of attention. Mostly from guys who have already done the equivalent and more. The consensus seems to be they are good from the standpoint of Warranty preservation but not so good from the most bang for the buck crowd's standpoint. See they offer a few go fast goodies but the tune that accompanies them is a canned item. No Ford Dealer is going to tweak the tune to make max power or to take into account other mods like LTH or Catback.

Then you have to factor in the high cost of Dealer installation. When you do that you quickly realize you can do a lot better by using premium aftermarket items and getting a dyne tune locally or a mail-order tune with datalogging for fine tuning.

If you're not planning on anything more than an axelbacks and want to keep the warranty while adding some street power the level 2 package adds 40 lbs tq. Another feature of the tune allows you to change gearing. Thinking level 2 with 3:23 or 3:55 gearing would be a nice improvement for the street in the performance pack cars.

Better off getting the Gt350 Intake Manifold and GT350 87MM throttle body seperately, Along with one of the top rated cold air intakes and then have it dyno tuned.

^^ This would result in more power and flexibility. It would probably be cheaper but we'll have to wait and see how much discounting goes on with the power packs.

Usually, you can find FRPP stuff about 25% cheaper than MSRP.

ie: the $540 tune, is available places for $400

That might make the GT350 intake and TB combo interesting but it still needs to be installed by an ASE certified mechanic to be covered by the FR warranty.

The latest on these packs is Stage 3 offers HP gains at top end only. Nothing down low where most of us live. Also they (all I think) require 91 and up octane gas. That's a big hit for many DD car owners.

Big thing with these is they keep your warranty.

Other mfg. offering 650 - 707hp with a warranty.
Maybe Ford should have offered more hp from the factory ??
But it looks like it will make a profit for the co. !

I'm pretty sure Ford has a GT500 up its sleeve still.

The GT350 filled the Boss slot.

The GT500 is still empty. The problem is there are some big shoes to fill.
Last one had 662hp. Dodge has 700, Chevy has 650.

I think they're just waiting for the 10 speed auto to finish validation, then they'll drop the 5.2L voodoo supercharged or maybe ecoboost turbo'd 5.0L GT500 with 10 speed auto probably around 700hp.

Much easier to turbo the Voodoo motor as no stress on the crank.

Still no way they will keep the FPC, my guess is a twin turbo 5.0.

Once, they master the technology, its ultimately a simpler (should be cheaper) motor. Its just getting it right, which it SEEMS like they've done.

Then again they're only producing 6,000 Voodoos per year vs. like 2,500,000 per year for all their other motors. So maybe not!

Base 2017 GT350 is 55K+, base " R " is 63K+, what would a new GT500 price point be....................& who would it's buyer demo be ??
.
A 2017 Z06, manual coupe base price is $ 79,450.00 & seems to be popular with the over 60 crowd !

$65-66k is my guess for a base GT500 with options going well into the $70's

Probably, a V6 Ecoboost power plant.

Unless it has 600+hp AND is lighter (b/c of engine and some aluminum/cf), then I don't really see that happening. I think Ford would have to double down with some other benefit to selling a V6 in them.

If you've driven an F150 with ecoboost and an aluminum body, you'll know what I'm talking about.

The big cost of the 350R is the $12,000 set of carbon fiber wheels. As long as the GT500 doesn't have CF wheels, it could hit around the same price point as the GT350 $60k+, but less than $70k.

But its a SUPERlative in flesh.

It comes in a super sexy, super lightweight CF/aluminum supercar body. And super performance #'s to back it up.
