It’s been uncertain whether the GT350 would continue to be made after this year. That question has now effectively been answered, along with even better news for GT350 fans and owners to be!

In an interview with Road and Track, Mustang Chief Engineer Carl Widdman has dropped the news that the GT500’s engine block will make it into the GT350 once the GT500 is in production!

And since the GT500 is still months away from start of production, this implies that the GT350 will also continue into 2020 and likely beyond! Rejoice and discuss inside.

At the heart of the new GT500 is a 5.2-liter V8 engine with Eaton 5.2-liter V8 Engine with Eaton 2.65-liter Supercharger, producing over 700 horsepower and powering the vehicle to mid-3 second 0-60 mph and sub-11 second quarter mile capabilities.

Most of us will never hit 12k track miles in our S550 Mustangs, much less in our lifetime. But M6G member honeybadger (Kevin)’s GT350 already has hit that mark. And we’re benefitting from his track rat habits as he now has his engine out of the car and gives us a vicarious look into how well (or not) the Voodoo 5.2L V8 has held up, as well as ideas for refreshing the GT350 engine.

Follow along inside as Kevin shares with us the condition of the crank and cylinder walls, and the wear amount on the main and rod bearings. He also lays out his specific plans to refresh it before the 2019 track season, by beefing up the valve train, machining heads, replacing crank/rod bearings and cam bearings, as well as adding better oil cooling. Be sure to subscribe for ongoing updates.

It’s been widely speculated what’s causing reported ticking issue in the Mustang’s Coyote V8 engine, with no conclusive answer yet. Could this be the true reason?

In this video, MPR Racing Engines shares what they believe to be the cause of the Coyote tick. In short, they believe it’s due to too much piston wall clearance, which leads to the knocking / ticking sound.

Are you convinced or not? Come discuss with us inside.

A recent tragic head on collision took the lives of two people, but the driver of the other vehicle (an S550 Mustang) managed to survive, despite the S550 being completely mangled.

Seen here with its front end completely destroyed, the Mustang’s crumple zone and safety technologies did its job in keeping the driver alive.

No doubt this is a good reminder to always drive with caution, but if you should unfortunately encounter a collision completely out of your control, you at least have some pretty stout protection in your Mustang.
