2013 Shelby GT500 Super Snake: Is 850 HP Too Much? - Ignition Ep. 81
On this episode of Ignition, Carlos Lago tests the 850 horsepower Shelby GT500
Super Snake. A horsepower claim that high
prompts three questions: Does it actually make that much power? Is it too
much for the car? And how fast is it? We find out with a trip to K&N
Engineering's Dyno, a
drive on mountain roads, and a trip to the test track.
Ignition appears every Monday on the Motor Trend youtube channel.

N/A 347 Mustang with Anderson N-111 cam.
Here's a video of my good friend Travis's N/A 347" stock block LX. He
just got the car up and running earlier this year and is starting to get it
figured out. It has AFR 185 heads with a little port work, Anderson N-111
cam, and a Vic.Jr intake. I dont know the carb size but I dont think it's
much more than a 650cfm. Trans is a Face plated TKO-600 and the car has a
4.56 rear gear. He was running on a 28x10 e.t. drag but they were wore
out so even a 4500rpm launch rpm would still blow them off. This was a
10.8@129 pass with a 1.7x 60' time. Car weight is right around 2950lbs
with driver. It'll go 10.40's with a new tire.

THR 347 Mustang Coupe 10 sec ALL Motor N/A Solid Roller 8,000 RPM Street Race Car
Hey Guys...I finally got a copy of some passes of the killer THR Black
Coupe at the track. I'm sorry for the quality of the vids as they were from
a client that was nice enough to share them on a DVD he made. (I was
driving so I did't get to video). Hope you enjoy as we've had alot of
people asking to see the 10 sec passes to back up the claims. Well here she
This is a 92 LX Coupe with a Custom THR 347 stroker capable of 8,000 RPM
making it's first couple passes at the local track. It's an all motor or
(N/A) car, NO Nitrous NO Boost NO POWER ADDED. JUST ALL MOTOR. Keep in
mind this is at our elevation of 4200 ft (DA of 6500 ft).
This race was a grudge match against a turbo & Nitrous
Import that runs low 10's. We had to cut a light to keep him staring at the
Tailights!! Check out our other passes to see the rest of the grudge races!
Props to an Import for trying to hang with American Muscle - He's Plenty
fast running 10's at our altitude to run off from most muscle cars! Just
don't mess with a killer THR STANG!!
Contact us for more details on the motor/chassis! Thanks for stopping by
