Re: BA GTHO: Your opinion on the Engine

Well, I'd love to see a Supercharged '8, but I doubt it's gonna happen.

To quote SM in April '03 -
We asked FPV Chief Engineer 'Winfried Bielharz' if a top-mounted blower was under consideration for any future HO program.
"No" came the swift reply, "That's old technology. Do you want to go forward or back?" Umm, we just want to go fast, mate.
End quote.

Damn straight, we just wanna go fast. Though with the specified mention of "top-mounted", maybe a blower is still in question, but being kept under wraps.

But in reality, a Turbo 6 is very likely on the cards, and as good as a powerplant as it is, I think the 'HO needs an 8 just to stay on track. Otherwise it might as well be an up-spec XR6.
I certainly wouldn't whinge if a Turbocharged (twin... YES PLEASE!!) BOSS V8 poked its head.

I think the BA is the model to do it in, it's so sexy.

Re: BA GTHO: Your opinion on the Engine

The Bored/Stroked/Mechanically enhanced Boss for me although a 5.8L Supercharged BOSS wouldn't get me complaining.

5.8L Because that was the last of the last of the all mighty HO's had i am 99.9% sure

If ford wan't a new HO it has to fill the Void that has been the for so many years.

A 350kw won't do holden/HSV will bring out a car to close I.e 320-330KW it will have to be something with a larger capacity V8(5.8 Famous capacity) with something new(Supercharger) and power to make it the new fastest four door of it's time(380-400kw) plus lots of light weaght equiptment a six speed box racing style seats, a V8 Supercar inspired ground scraping body kit and 19" FPV Rims with some kind of referance of phase 3
Keep the brembo brakes they are pretty good from what i here and as for price i would slot it in slightly above GT-P with a price of $85.000-$90.000 just my two cent worth any way.

cool Re: BA GTHO: Your opinion on the Engine

the engine combination in the FORD F150 LIGHTNING SVT would be sweet
5.4L supercharged engine developing 375kw

The Lightning F150 is the new guiness book of records holder the
FASTEST PRODUCTION LIGHT TRUCK in the WORLD

144mph and 13.5 400m times

This would be potent in the GTHO ... and would make it a solid dance partner at a high speed BOOGIE...

RIP HSV .... GAME OVER ....... TAMED
