    • What better breathing + 1000 rpm gets you - Twin screw GT350 Voodoo tops 800 whp compared to 663 whp for a supercharged Coyote at the same boost

      This dyno overlay illustrates what BoostAddict preached for years and continues to preach. Boosting a high revving naturally aspirated motor makes for a better power platform. Why? Because it takes less boost (and less heat) to hit higher output numbers and there is more headroom.


      This is a debate that raged in BMW circles forever as people debated the merits of adding forced induction to a naturally aspirated M car versus tuning one with forced induction from the factory.

      Just look at how this GT350 Voodoo V8 does with a 2.9 liter Whipple twin screw supercharger at 10-11 psi on 93 octane pump gas compared to a Mustang GT Coyote with a 2.3 liter Eaton TVS blower at similar boost:


      Night and day, isn't it? You will notice all the gains come up top past 5500 rpm. The better breathing of the Voodoo V8 paired with higher compression and a higher redline give it a power advantage of 149 rear wheel horsepower at similar boost pressure.

      Not only will the Voodoo V8 pull much harder it can be geared more aggressively due to the wider powerband.

      It is no wonder BoostAddict absolutely loves the Voodoo V8 and feels it is one of the best V8's ever made. What is there not to love about over 800 whp on pump gas?

That is a common misconception because we are used to seeing more 'square' engines with the horsepower and torque closer. In this case, the GT350 made 812 RWHP and 546 RWTQ. But you have to keep in mind that this power was made on pump gas at 10-11 psi. If you compare these numbers to a 2.3L TVS Mustang GT on similar boost, you can see that this GT350 is not low on torque, it's INSANE on horsepower!

        Wondering how inferior the strength is compared to the Coyote due to the flat plane configuration.

        Seems to be just as strong. Just incredible numbers.
