If you are looking for the twin-turbo setup, Fathouse Fabrications of Martinsville, Indiana is the shop you should definitely check out. One of the tuner’s latest creations is the excessively brutal Shelby GT350 Mustang.
When talking GT350, it is hard not to focus the discussion on the beating heart of a naturally aspirated monster.
The 5.2-liter Voodoo V8 is the future classic, 8,200 rpm redline and all, and some people aren’t happy with the goodies a flat-plane crank mill offers in the standard tune. This, then, is where the aftermarket steps in, forced induction saves the day.
Fathouse Fabrications’ take on a Shelby-ified pony starts with not one, and two Precision 6266 DBB turbochargers and two Tial Sport wastegates.
An uprated fuel system and the Borla ATAK active exhaust later, the GT350 churns out 737 hp and in excess of 630 pound-feet of torque on pump gas, 7 psi of boost.
Crank things up to 8 psi and E85 fuel, expect 832 ponies ready at the moment’s notice to massacre the rear tires.
The mods list goes far beyond the engine bay, though. And the 19-inch Forgeline wheels, for example, are complemented by the more aggressive stance thanks to the BMR Rear control arms and bushings.
To ensure the clutch doesn’t give up after the couple of burnouts, the Indiana-based shop swapped the original unit for the McLeod RXT with the aluminum flywheel.
More power also equals more heat, a reason why cooling has also been addressed by the FatFab’s in-house developed transmission and differential coolers. All in all, the GT350 in question is the absolutely glorious build.
The Ford Motor Company will address the GT350’s limitations with the all-new GT500, the muscle car that is due to go on sale for the 2019 model year.
Expected to be showcased early next year at the Detroit Auto Show, there is still the lot of mystery surrounding the innards of a most extreme S550 Mustang yet. What is certain, however, is that the all-new GT500 will up the ante beyond 662 hp and 631 pound-feet of torque.
