    That new 5.0L sounds tasty, I hope they fix the looks of that rear end.

      419 horsepower Steve will make me turn just slightly for that rear end. LOL

        I wouldn't have one towed off the driveway I guess.

            WOW!

            That makes me happy.

            Too bad I can't afford one. Even if I hadn't bought the new(er) car, I couldn't afford what they want for a new Mustang GT.

            Maybe when the kids finally leave the house.

              The Coyote 5.0 is a 'GO' for 2011 !! More horsepower, better economy and 20% lighter (alum heads and block) than the previous 5.0.

                Here's something I got in an email from Hemmings:

                Muscle Cars

                5.0 Mustang GT and Boss are back for 2011

                Ford's 2011 Mustang GT should really howl, powered by the latest incarnation of Ford's modular engine line -- a 412hp/390-lbs.ft. DOHC, four-valve, all-aluminum V-8 dubbed "Coyote" that will displace 5-liters/302 cu.in.


                Ford also announced this week that it would install the new cammer engine in a full-race factory package called the BOSS 302R which, for a sticker price of $79,000, will boast the new 5-liter powerplant, a six-speed manual transmission, a roll cage, race seats, data acquisition capability, race shocks and springs and a Brembo brake package. The BOSS 302R will be strictly non-streetable, but with Chevrolet hinting at a production Z/28, how long will it be before Dearborn drops the R and adds a street-ready version of the BOSS to its stable? (Soon we hope!)


                The production 5-liter has an all-new aluminum block with optimized windage and oil drainback, increased main bearing bulkhead widths and nodular iron cross-bolted main bearing caps. The 5.0 uses a larger bore and stroke than the 4.6 and an 11:1 compression ratio to deliver its estimated 82.4hp per liter wallop. The engine will also use cam-torque-actuated Twin Independent Variable Camshaft Timing to advance or retard the cam timing, based on several factors including throttle opening. Ford claims that using camshaft torque energy provides faster throttle response and aids fuel economy. As a result, the 412hp bruiser is going to achieve an estimated 17 city/25 highway MPG with a six-speed automatic and 16/24 with a six-speed manual.

                The new 5-liter engine weighs just 430 pounds, which makes it 20 percent lighter than the old pushrod 302. But then, it also uses an aluminum block and heads, a lightweight composite intake manifold, composite cam covers and hollow camshafts.


                The 2011 Mustang GT will also boast all-around improvements like enhanced rear lower control arms to add stiffness and sharpen handling; a stiffened rear stabilizer bar for better on-center steering; larger stabilizer bars front and rear, as well as revised spring rates and tuned-up shocks.

                Ford says a 14-inch Brembo brake package upgrade will be available for serious enthusiasts. The big binders will necessitate unique 19-inch alloy wheels and will be shod with summer performance tires.

                The 2011 Mustang GT convertible has also been beefed up, with lateral stiffness improved by 12 percent versus the 2010 model, according to Ford. A tower-to-tower front strut brace is now standard, and the car's V-brace has been stiffened by adding gussets. The secondary crossmember also has been stiffened, while a front Z-brace has been added, connecting primary and secondary crossmembers. A-pillar stiffening foam also has been added to increase rigidity.


                Ford has made preliminary information available to the media, but we'd expect a larger public rollout after the Detroit Auto Show. Stay tuned.

                  Will today's 92 Octane crappy gas be OK for that 11:1 C/R ??

                    Today's fuel injection and ignition and valve timing control is almost magical. It's amazing how precise they can make these new engines run.

                      yea but todays engine control systems are far superior. If fuel isnt up to par the system will control other factors to avoid damage.

                              Howdy, all!

                              I'm wondering if any of you guys have info on the GT's 6 speed automatic. I was at a dealership today and the sales rep insisted it would have the "manual shift" option where (like on the Taurus SHO) you can slip the shifter down to "M" and use paddle shifters on the steering wheel to shift.

                              I've also seen various articles that state that the Brembo brake package will have its own uniquie 19" wheels - the dealer was not sure about that.

                              AND finally, the dealer was sure that with the auto, you could get a choice of differential gearing: the stock ratio is something like 3.32:1. I was hoping to get 3.55:1 gears with the automatic.

                              Anyone hear anything? YES I'M GETTING AN AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION. I also wear hearing aids and my eyes ain't so great.

                              I figure the Depends will keep the skidmarks off of the leather .....
