The 05 Mustang Engine Concerns

  1. Is anyone else concerned with Fords Choice in the engine the are using in the new Mustang GT?

    Heres why I am, the ease of supercharging. It is a Aluminium Block, running high compressions. Not the best formula for supercharging the engine.
     
  2. They arnt supercharging it? I am sure if they supercharge the Cobra they will lower the compression, they arn't that dumb.
     
  3. hes talking about aftermarket i imagine.

    anyone who wants to run any real boost would get differnt pistons with even 9.5:1 compression.
     
  4. I had the same concern. The higher compression makes it more of a nitrous motor than a blower one but the ls1 guys have been able to put blowers on their high compression motors with good success even though the psi is relatively low.
     
  5. I think the roots charger will only be pushing 5-10 psi, so I doubt there should be much concern unless the engine is pushing 100k+ miles.
     
  6. I thought it was an iron block?
     
  7. In the 05's its Aluminium.
     
  8. Since 1996, the only iron block has been in the '03/'04 Cobras.
     
  9. They are not making a supercharged Mustang till 07 from what I been hearing. If they do It will most likey have an iron block and low compression (current Cobra's have 8.5:1 CR) to take advantage of the power a supercharger can produce. High compression on a blown engine does not make much sense.
     
  10. yea, for 2003 they switched to an iron block for strength. to everyone else, everyone knows this, so shut it.
