The tradition has been whooping ass. I don't see that changing

"Traditionally" you couldn't get power like that out of anything but a big block too...

Again, a ford gt should not have a 6 cylinder. If that engine were in a different a car, it'd be so much more acceptable for me. But nothing beat the sound of the supercharged 5.4 from the previous gt.

Exactly what I was hoping for from the new Raptor, or a 5.0 Coyote cammed, & supercharged.

I wish they just introduced a different car with that 6 cyl drivetrain, and then just kept on doing what they always have with the ford gt

well you gotta remember the ford Gt is there race car sense the Gt-40 that's what it has been about. So they chose that one, the ones ford enthusiasts call the Ferrari slayer and the AC cobra was a Ferrari slayer to. Could u imagine running a big block or something in a 24 hour race at LeMans haha

----------

I'll add to that Shelby tried it with a 427 they were fast as hell, but they overheated and broke down on the track.

yup all about the race game. I believe they run rules similar to what NASCAR use to be (and still should be) to have a vehicle qualify it has to be a vehicle that is a production vehicle with so many sales. That's how nascar use to be, and then ford messed part of that up because ford is the reason the Hemi is outlawed in nascar because they made them faster than the Mopars and then Mopar "made one with more hp" so they said which caused ford to make there's faster and the Hp numbers got unfair so others

Ford should have came out with 2 versions of the GT. One for LeMans and another 8 cyl version for people who prefer a v8. Not sure though if that would disqualify them from LeMans though.
