Ford is working on a Mustang GT350

Ford is working on a more powerful GT350 version of the Mustang. That model is poised to be debuted at the 2015 Detroit Auto Show, and will go on sale early next year.

The new model will use the 5.0-liter Coyote V8 engine, but it will be retuned to offer more than the current 420 hp and 290 lb-ft of torque. Rumor has it that the Mustang GT350 will use forced induction. It may be supercharged for extra torque, instead of turbocharged.

The Mustang GT350 should also get some cosmetic upgrades. Expect a more aggressive style with larger front air intakes and a different front grille. Larger brakes will be a natural fit while 19-inch wheels will be standard.

I'm not sure about some of those details. Birds word is indeed that we will have a GT350 instead of a GT500. You will also notice that this is also the 50th anniversary of the first GT350's!

So where it gets interesting is there have been a few Hi-Po prototypes seen lurking about with what is obviously audibly the 3.5 TT from the Police Specials/F150. So the logic seems to be GT350 could or should be a 3.5L TT V6, and GT500 will then be similar except with a 5.0L V8...

What would be better, supercharged or turbocharged? I see people saying how a supercharger is better for more linear power.

supers are more linear but provide less punch than a turbo. And the way the Ecoboost Turbos have been designed there is no lag anymore. They're essentially sequential...

I've never really had the chance to drive a supercharged and turbocharged engine. At least to the point where I could explain how they drive differently. If what you say is true @Newport then i think that I would rather go with more punch than a more linear progression.

depends on your application. Turbos make a TON of power in the correct band, but older setups can be very peaky to the point you feel next to nothing as the boost spools. Supers retain the feeling of a Natural engine accented with a pleasurable little scream

I also find supers more reliable...
