Spotted: 2011 Mustang 5.0

Yep, saw one for the first time last night while hanging out with some friends from another local car club.

Saw it pull in and the first thing i noticed was the lights, which i would like to add were friggen spectacular. The HID's projectors had a gorgeous white/blue hue to them. Anyways, then i noticed the different rims and then the oh-so-beautiful 5.0 badging on the side and though "no way..." It was completely loaded with all the goodies, vert, nav, stereo, 6-speed MTX, etc... The handling upgrades everywhere really impressed me too. It had all sorts of strut tower bracing in the front and rear as well as beefed up sway bars and brembo brakes.

Snapped some pics, chatted with the driver for a bit. He's a Ford Executive who works at the Canadian head office in Oakville, Ontario and said he was just out testing it. Sorry about the crappy quality pics, they were snapped with the camera phone and the lighting was kind of crappy. Enjoy

I'd like to add as well, that this thing sounds friggen MEAN! For a completely factory car, the Camaro and Challenger would probably piss themselves.

Re: Spotted: 2011 Mustang 5.0

I saw 2 of them yesterday, they started hitting the lots here last week. One of which was the one I test drove, the other was one I raced. Gave the one I raced a nice dumb-founded look on his face. Hes like "but yours is a 2010 with a 4.6....how'd you beat me?"

"Whipple."

"Oh. That makes sense"

Yep. Running whipples high-output kit. Intercooled W140ax.

My supercharger has as much displacement as my old car, heh.

Same rumor I've heard. Although, I've also heard that the new GT350 is pushing more power than a GT500 on the stock 5.0 rods.

FYI, Evo only had a drop in K&N filter, not a true intake when they ran that 11.65. Those cars are STUPID fast out of the box. And they get retardedly awesome gas mileage.

I wasn't a huge fan of the transmission in the one I test drove, skip shift feature is ODD. And I can see why EVO also killed the clutch in their 5.0 already. Stock clutch seems to be a bit junky.

Another supposed rumor, is that once you start modding these cars the first weak link besides the clutch is the driveshaft. Supposedly the 2 piece drive shaft breaks. I know it's a different driveshaft than mine, but mine is still a 2 piece and it's holding up just fine. So are hundred's of other people who have 600+whp.

I'm just glad these 5.0s are FI and not DI, should make it easy to get crazy numbers out of them. Ford Racing also has a kit so you can drop the new 5.0 motor in all 2005-2010 Mustangs. However, it prices in at a cool $21k. Why not just buy a 2011 at that point?

If my motor ever blows, which is doubtful, since it's got a set of good aftermarket rods and pistons in it. I'll be going 5.0, thats for sure. But it won't be a new 5.0, it will be a bored 4.6 from Brenspeed.
