I would like to get everyone's feedback on a dilemma. I am considering adding torque and HP to my 2016 GT350. Ford has done such a good job with this car I am not sure i want to make any changes. I am considering doing a slight upgrade with Hennessey Performance (I hope I didnt violate any law by mentioning the company's name). Does this hurt or help the resale if I ever choose to resale and does this hurt the overall performance of the car? Any feedback would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

We have a GT350 in the shop. Doing a complete engine build with turbo install. Upgraded fuel system etc. We have done exhaustive research on this platform. Working with to manufactures to bring some products to market.

So far the weakest point we have seen is the clutch, and tuning around the torque limitations of the clutch. Not sure how much power you are looking for. There is not a lot of gains with your typically bolt ons.
We have tried a few intake mods, e85 conversion, and a few tricks. None really picked up much.

PM me if you want any details on the vehicle.

Bolt ons are reversible if you're worried about resale value.

Paying over 60 grand for a Mustang that needs help in the power department is totally unacceptable. This car should absolutely scream at any RPM range for that money.

Not a need, a want. Get yourself a JLT intake and tune from Leading Edge Tuning. They have done several now. Getting nice reviews.

Why ? You are now disrupting the balance of the car as the engineers designed the integration. I wouldn't touch this car.
The increase in performance will be negligible not worth it...

not touching mine....unless i get a replacement clutch from rodneytxps
It's coming! I spoke with our rep at TX2K and it is close. As soon as I have photos of the new clutch I will be writing up a full article on what we found, and why we changed.
The clutch will be everyones first upgrade, well that and a tune.

When I got mine from the dealer he said there will be a tune available that will give it an additional 100 HP with no add on. He doesn't know when it will be out from Ford, but that is what Ford told him. They kept it under 600 HP to not hurt sales of the GT500's out there. But he could of been BS'ing me as well.

This is total BS. We have been all over the tune. It is fairly maxed out from the factory.
With a few bolts ons and E85 swap we were still not close to a +100hp.
However, with some tuning changes the response and drivability is much better.
I can't wait to install our new clutch and get rid of the torque limiter.
