Wonder how much RWHP a Shelby GT500 with a 93 octane Procal II tune and FR500S exhaust would put out with the 117 octane fuel.

It's a 'Stang thang; they wouldn't understand!

yep, a hellion twin turbo can easily make 1000hp, check out their website and see one do 1200!
I do believe there is a limit even to the GT500 lower end...at that point you better have billet rods, pistons and block.

Didn't the last issue of MM&FF have an article on the GT1000 Livernois built? Should list everything in the build there.

I have a 3.6lc set up on my shelby right now and i just ordered the livernois short block so in about a month i will have 850 rwhp which is 1000 flywheel.. right now im making 645RWHP on a 100% stock motor. We had to put the biggest pulley on it and tune it to the lowest boost which was 12! lol and it still pulls an est 800 flywheel.. when i get the build done ill be running at least 20 psi I cant wait to hear that freaking thing scream!!

1. Add 2 turbo's, great tuning, high octane, adequate fuel, stronger clutch, and go for it. A built motor or less power would probably be necessary.

2005 Ford Focus ST 2.3L- Focussport Intake, Cosworth Intake Manifold, Cosworth Header and Flex Pipe, Trubendz 2.5" exhaust, FSWerks Tune on X-Cal 2, Hawk pads, stainless brake lines, Quaife LSD, 4.06 Final drive, Exedy clutch and flywheel, KW Variant 1 coilovers, Steeda STS shifter

Hellion Compound boost setup. Tony Alm's GT500 (the current 5.0 Mustang & Super Fords Magazine "King of the Street") made 1200rwhp and it is a street driven 6-speed car.
