1,348 HP Twin Turbo Mustang Shelby GT350 Is An Epic Build

The new Shelby GT500 may be the most powerful ‘Stang you can buy right now, but the GT350 still holds a very special place in perrolheads’ hearts.

The pony car is fitted with one of the finest V8s Ford has ever built for one of its road cars. Displacing 5.2 liters and featuring a flat-plane crank, it pumps out 526 HP and produces an absolutely intoxicating sound. We’re such big fans of the GT350 that we’re not sure if this twin-turbocharged example is cool or not.

On the one hand, we do appreciate seeing epic twin-turbocharger builds – and this one has fruitful results. In fact, this GT350 delivers an extraordinary 1,348 HP at the rear wheels (!), making the Shelby GT500’s 760 HP seem benign in comparison. Not only have the turbochargers increased power significantly, but they haven’t really had a detrimental impact on the glorious sound of the engine.

However, knowing how fine the engine of the GT350 is, we do understand that purists might object (just a little bit…) over messing with it. Mind you, there are also hand-built headers, a new fuel pump, upgraded ECU, a carbon fiber driveshaft and a massive intercooler.

All in all, not bad. Not bad at all…

    There were concerns about the longevity of the flat plane crank format, which is why Ford worked so hard to get it streetable in the GT350. I cannot even imagine what putting over 1,300 HP through one would do to it. It’s impressive, for sure, and it must be scary as hell to drive, but also riotous fun. It seems there is an exhaust leak of some sort under the hood.

    • Bo Hanan

      I would imagine the engine and transmission are disposable items in this car.

  • SteersUright

    Would much prefer to see the first Mustang GT350 someone manages to take 500lbs of fat out of. Now that would be an epic ride.

  • Pnutt

    I think that’s just the external wastegate bleeding off boost to keep pressure in check.

    • eb110americana

      Maybe, but that seems a poor location for it. Also, why would it be bleeding off pressure at full throttle on a dyno pull? If so, that means the turbos are likely capable of even higher boost levels, so maybe a bit oversized for the application.

    You can never own the “Ultimate Mustang”. There are too many tuners, builders and fanatics constantly upping the ante. So, buy one that you enjoy and can live everyday with.
