So we're going to just tell you ourselves. As expected, the GT will be powered by a 5.0-liter. It will make a substantial 412 horsepower.

I'm guessing this is that Coyote engine they yakked about last summer??

I've got a recipe for Coyote stew, take one Coyote equipped Mustang, add a dash of Camaro SS, and slow cook on forever

2SS/RS, CGM, A6, Magnuson TVS2300 Supercharger

Thats going to be the problem, They are lighter.. Like 500 lbs.. 2011 is going to be interesting.. GM has to know this and have something ready..

Before I say good job Ford I want to see the torque numbers and RPMs before I say if the 2011 GT will give it to a stock 2010 SS or not.




Also what will this motor put to the Rear wheels for a Manual and for an Auto ?

What size Rearend are they running ?

Whats the final weight of this car ?


Thats what I want to know.


one thing for sure when it comes down to weight/power Ford wins right now.

imo GM build an awsome car that looks Beautiful ( thats why im buying one..well that and im a Gm guy ) However the Camaro needs a Diet and I dont see why Gm didnt put the time after 4 years of work in keeping weight down.

as far as HP & TQ to the ground, Ford cannot beat the efficiency GM has put into the LS powertrains over the years! where we see 80%-85% efficiency, Mustangs only see 70%-75%!

It will be an interesting match-up... I just hope the Z/28 comes out with at least an LS7 or better engine!
