Lethal Performance 2013 GT500 Motor Install & Dyno!
We are no stranger to ripping up the track and the Dyno with brand new vehicles and
our 2013 Shelby GT500 is further proof. The car has already run 9s with the
stock blower and motor, but we just can't leave it that way..
So we had Tim Eichorn of Mustang Performance Racing Engines go
to town on a new longblock for our Shelby. The heads and cams were modified
and assembled by Kris Starnes, who did a fantastic job.
Once the motor was done, we topped it off with a 4.0L Whipple from Whipple
Superchargers, custom powdercoated in a
clean white finish.
The powerplant is fed by our Lethal Performance complete fuel system using
Fragola Push Lite race hose & fittings, divisionX filter & adapters and
CP-E fuel rails and fuel hat.
Our good friends over at Power By The Hour Performance in Boynton Beach, FL
did the complete install and we were there to cover it, getting you an
inside look at putting together our newest monster.
Ken Bjonnes of Lund Racing was on site to Dyno and tune the car (which
made some awesome numbers). For those numbers and a more detailed writeup
on the fuel system install checkout the future issue of 5.0 Magazine where
all will be revealed!
For information on any of the parts we've used on this car or to build your
own, check out www.lethalperformance.com or give us a call at 877-2-LETHAL.
Next time you see this car it will be going down the track!
