So many specs to drool over on this machine!
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.
