The Other 5.8L SVT Mustang


Recommended Posts

Well with rumors of the 2013 GT500 saying it may have a 600+ HP 5.8L Supercharged V8 under the hood, this magic number brings me back in my memory, to another SVT Mustang that had a 351 cubic monster under the hood.

 

 

Except this one is about 300HP less

Has a cheaper sticker price (but some SVT dealers actually asked the customers for more which the price was about the same as a 2012 GT500)

Has no radio

Has one less gear (5 instead of 6)

But was rarer (250 of them made)

 

 

and also made Mustang history as well

 

 

 

I'm talking about......

 

 

 

 

 

 

The 1995 Ford Mustang SVT Cobra R

Actually if I had to choose a late model 5.8L Mustang id prefer the supercharged 495hp 1999 s351 from Saleen.

That's a cool car. There were many other mustangs that did have a 5.8 V8 under the hood.

 

Like the Boss 351

and another Mustang with a 5.8 under the hood except it is a V10 and a Mule Car

Even found a cool video on this V10 Monster. Car sounds pretty sick with this V10. I wish that I could have made it to production. :shift:

I had a V-10 in my '02 F-250. I absolutely loved that engine. The smoothest running engine I have ever seen. Made tons of power. I always dreamed of putting one in a mustang. That would have been a true beast.

Really?

Have you even been in a new or modded diesel 3/4 ton (not a old 7.3L PSD). I don't even consider the V10 after driving a modern day diesel with a tune. Truck V10's also sound like garbage, but hey if that your thing more power to you. :shift:

^Now that's bad!

Honestly never seen that guy before. Very cool find.

 

yeah it is a sick video and cool car with a sick sound.

 

J Mays has been with Ford since 1997. He was also the same guy in the autoblog/ Mustang daily video talking about a "very cool Mustang" coming in 2014! :happy feet:

 

Pretty interesting video too. Also talks about the future of Ford's lineup of cars. :lurk:

Yeah they pack a punch, but I also like the V10s too.

 

V10 sounds like garbage. You sould see this video of an F-250 with a Trition V10 and stacks! :drool:

Now THAT I would like to see.

 

Would you also consider adding a supercharger if you could?

It sounds good revving in park in that video. Way different then the mall crawler with loud mufflers I have hot rodding around my town.

 

I bought compound turbo system Poole off him back in 03 for my old 99 Cummins.
