I can hear them now "Yes, the Ford Performance parts that Ford gave us do indeed work.... Amazing.... Okay back in the trailer."

I can be on board with this. An S650 GT350/R with a reliable engine this time around? Tweak the exterior design with a Shelby touch, and I might just place an order.

Umm the generation 2 Voodoo is reliable... there are some 350s in the 350 forum with over 70k miles on them. The early gen 1s had some problems with burning oil and the oil filters coming loose if not torqued properly.. so if you didn't check your oil every tank of gas ... yes people had issues. But the gen 2 is a proven motor.

Damn, I was excited that it was a Shelby variant being tested by Ford and not the lads in Vegas. Don't get me wrong, what they do is cool, but the Shelby corp based in Vegas is basically just a tuning shop at this point, nothing too exciting imo.

Yes, this is Shelby American, not Ford Performance so expect a slightly breathed on N/A Shelby GT and a supercharged Super Snake. All based on the Gen 4 5.0

But, I buy into the Shelby history, so I'm excited to see what they come up with.

It is Shelby American, what is interesting to me is that it looks like they are starting with a Dark Horse instead of a GT judging be the front end. N/A Shelby Dark Horse maybe?

Nah, I'm not a gambler by nature, that's why I skipped the GT350/R. Too many bad stories around (unlike the Coyote and Predator engines). I hope FR comes out with a worthy successor to the GT350/R, and a more reliable engine, maybe Aluminator-based.

The Gen IV’s dual intake setup immediately makes it a better base for a flat plane crankshaft setup if Ford chooses to pursue that route again, so reliability concerns shouldn’t be so bad

To which I say hell yes. If I had to pick one type of V8 quality, high revs > big displacement/supercharged stuff any day of the week
