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
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"
- 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!
