    ***VIDEO***2013 Ford Shelby GT500 Acceleration 160+ MPH !!!

    Here is couple of pulls in the brand new 2013 GT500 in a private runway. Please dont forget that this car is completely bone-stock, and even in this form car pulls like a freight train! I believe it is very possible to achieve 200+ mph with the longer runway.

    Enjoy,

    YEP. The '13s are very capable cars. The only weak part about the engine are the pistons and rods, since you can max them out with just boltons.

    You can max the internals with freaking bolt ons?

    I really like this car - tons of power for the dollar. I do wish however, that they would RIP that gauge cluster out - and throw it in the garbage. It looks like it's from 1970 (which is their intention?) - however, it's ridiculous on a 600+ HP (i.e. functional) car. On the last pull (75 MPH) - the needle moves at nearly the same speed the entire time - regardless of full or partial load. Garbage!

    Love the car though - just hate the gauges on Mustangs.

    Unfortunately yes Click here to enlarge Thats why most of the 700+whp(on pump gas) gt500's are exploding.

    Well, ford tried to give it a retro look by making the gauge cluster like that i guess. Its not my favorite design as well but I guess we just have to DEAL WITH IT Click here to enlarge lol

    I didn't know this I'm surprised the internals aren't stronger.

    I haven't heard of a single GT500 grenading yet. I'm not calling you a liar or doubting your statement, but would like to read about these cars if you have a link or two you can provide.

    I was under the same impression as you. I try to keep up with the GT500 scene and so far had never heard of a single motor that let go. The thought was that the stock block was good for 800-900 WHP on these motors.

    Strange. I saw a dyno pull of a 5.0 coyote engine at 1000whp on stock internals (literally nothing but valve springs and a twin turbo setup). I figured the GT500 could handle at least as much as that motor...

    You sure about this?? I know the Coyote is forged from Ford, so I figured there's a lot of mod room with the new GT500

    The reason that you guys havent heard it about is probably,because the builders dont tell you what happened(if it blow up or not). I also said MOST of the gt500 not all of them. Of course you can go up to 900+whp with stock internals, but I am telling you, any time you spend over 720+whp(on pump gas) with stock internals is a borrowed time especially you race your car a lot. Yes the GT500's internals are forged but they are not that good. There are couple of articles about 2013 GT500's blowing up just with boltons, Ill try to find them, but the one that comes in my mind right away is the Evolution performance's 2013 gt500 (that broke the 9-sec barrier with just boltons).

    Still 2013 GT500 is a very capable car. Besides the weak rods and pistons all the other stuff is pretty durable. We will see how durable those are when we start tearing up the GT500's engine in the vid Click here to enlarge

    Hope this helps

    I've not heard of any failures for the new GT500's as of yet not with bolt ons at least. Then again bolt ons can be a 4L Whipple and that will likely break something LOL

    Just google'd around, this forum is saying Evolution bolted on a KB 3.6L which is good for 800-1000 HP. SO depending on the tune & pulley they were running, kinda not surprised why something broke. Someone is saying that the block is rated up to 2500 HP, but the rods (which aren't forged) give up ~800 WHP

    A supercharger upgrade isn't a bolt on although technically you bolt it on with tools. An engine swap could be considered "bolt on" just because you also bolt it in.

    For Ford motors I've usually seen the rods be the weak point. It was this way on the Lightning which needed forged rods past some surprisingly low number for a motor of that size.

    Completely different, the GT500 can do 62 mph in first gear. I am already halfway through second in the boss. I have 3.73s, GT500 I believe comes stock with 3.31s. The shelbys are geared very looong because of all the power they make, ford did it right.
