Is that a Roadster Shop front end? I wanted to do that to mine,but it was a little to steep for my wallet.

That looks like the DSW alumaframe setup.
I remember seeing an install video (or maybe it was pictures) and it looks pretty complicated, but it does look incredible in the car.

Okay 69bosssvt: more details. Stat! You appear
to use many big parts I want to use and I am
extremely curious.

Love the DSE front suspension. Too awesome. Do
you plan to use the DSE Coyote motor mounts? I
am very curious if shaving the firewall and moving
the engine rearward is possible with Alumaframe.
I've never seen anyone attempt that, and I wonder
if it's even feasible.

Is the rear end from DSE? It looks very nice.

Perhaps you mentioned this elsewhere and I missed
it, but is that a real Shelby 5.2L Voodoo? Or is that
the long-promised 5.2L Aluminator XS crate motor
with the cross-plane crank and 12:1 comp?

I've been waiting for the 5.2L XS since it was
announced, but I haven't found any parts catalogs
listing it. Web searching the part# M-6007-A52XS
yields zero results.

Finally, did the engine ship with the intake
removed? That seems odd.

Anyway, thanks for sharing! This will be a very
cool build.

I doubt Ford will be selling the 5.2 Voodoo flat plane crank motor as a crate motor. You'll have to get a junker.

"Why didnít you simply add the Mustang Shelby GT350 engine as a part in the Ford Performance Parts catalog?
The high revving characteristics and unique sound of the Mustang Shelby GT350 engine are very special and we decided to preserve the exclusivity of the vehicle by not including the engine in our catalog." Ford Performance Staff.

Correct. However, there are other ways to get a Voodoo motor
if you are determined. For example, Ford will sell spare or
replacement engines to an existing Shelby GT350 owner. Or
perhaps you have a buddy who owns a Ford dealership.

My real hope is that 69bosssvt has a new A52XS crate motor.
I can buy the 5.2L block and heads and then build the motor
piecemeal, but that is a much more expensive approach.

I personally prefer the A52XS to the real Voodoo motor. Ford
dropped the compression to from 12.5:1 to 12:1 which I find
a bit more practical in a street car. I mainly prefer the
traditional V8 rumble to the exotic flat-plane crank buzz.

Mine is the voodoo 5.2 flat plane crank engine...it took a while to get it and they told me it is the only engine produced that is not in a car as they are way behind on production for the cars. Mine is actually an engine that was slated for the "off-road" version and has a few race spec upgrades for the class they race. They call it the 5.2L SVT-R engine...

So you were right behind the Factory Five guys and their Snap On build? It is all about who you know, good for you man.

Just in case you don't know, the FF build is a different motor.
The Voodoo used by 69bosssvt is the real Shelby GT350 motor
which is a rather rare and exotic beastie...

- Flat-plane crank
- 12.5:1 compression
- GT350 intake plenum

69bosssvt has pulled off a big coup d'etat to get a new racing
Shelby GT350 motor. That's the kind of one-of-one part that
builders like Trepanier, Foose, Ring, etc would love to take
to SEMA.

In contrast, Factory Five and Snap-On used a 5.2L Aluminator
XS crate engine from Ford Racing. This is the first appearance
by this long awaited crate motor (and I'm obviously too excited).
The 5.2L Coyote crate motor is identical to the "Voodoo"
motor except...

- Cross-plane crank
- 12:1 compression
- Cobra Jet intake plenum

I think for street rodders, the A52XS is a more practical choice.
It's more affordable, the lower compression is safer, the Cobra
Jet intake is way cooler, and the traditional cross-plane crank
rumbles like a V8 should. Anyone can order one from Ford in
the near future. Now if I can just afford the darn thing!
