I don't know how many of you have seen this elsewhere (and I didn't find a similar thread with the search), but the new blown 5L GT is causing plenty of arguments on other forums.

We (as in Street Fords magazine) ran the car up on a dyno on Wednesday arvo and saw a colossal 353rwkw. Stunned, we took this completely stock car to Sydney Dragway and despite the handicap of a manual 'box Roy got a 12.92@113.99mph out of it :shock:

The challenge was put out on PF by CHE that it can't possibly make that much power, but yesterday morning it still managed 328rwkW/440rwhp on their dyno. Whatever the actual number, and whatever the car's real potential (the 12 was its second pass and it wasn't a perfect run by any means), this car is making way more power than the sticker indicates.

Don't shoot the messenger Brett :)
Oh, and that manual GS that I took to the Fordmods meet-up last Friday reeled off and equally surprising 302rwkW on the same dyno that said the GT has 353rwkW.

Just a quick question; does the "335" indicate 335fwkw - as it has in past FPV designations?

Yep, it's more than unexpected... it's suspicious. The cynic in me says that Ford have provided a upgrade tuned car for journo test driving etc. If that's the actual case and I had that particular car and I knew how to download that engine tune, I'd be selling that tune for $$$ to new FPV owners.
