5.2L For GT350?

We may have our first clue as to what the GT350s beating heart will be...

From a Ford parts catalog, 5.2L But there is no 5.2L Mustang, YET!

Good spot. I wonder if other websites and forums have figured this out yet. Do we have any idea what other information is available for this engine?

im sure they have
OP probably picked it up from some popular website for all we know
if we have it, likely the rest of the world does too.

Has this engine been used in anything else that could give us more info on its specs, like horsepower, torque etc...

Ford doesn't make a 5.2L anything thats what makes the mention of one so suspicious. This is rumored to be the Voodoo engine, which is a reworked Coyote...

OOOooo, how exciting, a brand new engine. Do you think this Mustang will be the first that we see it in, or is there anything else that it may debut in before we see it in the Mustang?

Again, its not actually a new engine as I mentioned its a reworked Coyote. Unlikely, the Voodoo would be too agressive for the F-150 especially if they make the rumoured move to flat plane.

Ford doens't NEED to use Voodoo anywhere else realistically, the Coyote program amortises itself and the Voodoo will simply be a sideffect of that IMO

So Motor Trend seems to be convinced that the Voodo is going to be a 5.2L Flat Plane crank Engine.

One source says they’re still working out the kinks. Another says that the kinks are in fact engine accessories. Ford’s solved the second-order vibration issue by attaching a big, honking vibration damper on the end of the crankshaft. That seems to do the trick. However, when testing the GT350 on the Nürburgring, those same secondary vibrations backed a bolt out of the car’s starter, shutting down the entire electrical system while the car was going pretty fast. That’s bad. However, the SVT boys and girls have taken the necessary steps and have essentially beefed up the Mustang’s accessories for GT350 duty. We hear they’ve had one spinning happily at 7500 rpm for quite some time for a durability test. As for power, we’re guessing close to 600 hp and around 430 lb-ft of torque. Whatever the final numbers, this is one hopped-up Mustang we’re dying to drive.
Yes Me TOO!
