Ford Performance’s chief functional engineer, Kerry Baldori, standing trackside at Laguna and pausing to hold back as each GT350 bellowed past, said the thought of a flat-plane crank happened after it was actually thought to replace the supercharged GT500 that has a naturally aspirated V-8 greater than 500 horsepower. If you’re sticking with port fuel injection, absent a blower, making that kind of sauce takes some tricks, especially. Ford engineers needed to realize why Ferrari is really so enamored with flat cranks. They found out. A lighter, leaner crankshaft reduces windage losses and means faster windup. That, plus some heavy work with reducing internal friction, produced a Mustang V-8 which is the most esoteric (but the most convincing) proof of Ford’s intentions to do this one right.
