A completely different set up. From another forum:

It's completely different turbos guys, much larger on F150 in comparison to what the transverse vehicles have.
The Ford GT basically uses the same setup that I had on my 600WHP flex for fuel, it has both direct injection and port fuel injection for extra fueling.
The key with these vehicles is getting a big enough turbo and then having enough fuel to fuel it. So far 2 people, myself and a SHO owner have gotten over 600WHP out of the vehicles. I added extra injectors and dual fuel pumps so that I could run E85 pump gas, the SHO made 600WHP on race gas, both achieved the power via 25+lbs of boost (maxed out the upgraded turbos) and timing increases either due to the E85 or the race gas.

 


love turbos.....

I have my TT power and like what it does.  Only complaint is lack of full instrumentation to evaluate what is happening with boost, pressure, etc.  Also, there is concern in high humidity areas of carbon buildup on the valves with possible engine failure.  I took an extended warranty just in case.

I'm wondering when we will see the new SHO.  I've been wanting a SHO really bad, but I've been trying to hold out for the new one.

^^^ according to someone posting on another site I lurk on, the new Lincoln Continental concept should give a clue of what to expect. Works for the company that developed and is testing the AWD system for the Focus RS. Supposedly he drove a "largish" sedan with a smaller Ecoboost TT V6 (2.7L - 3.0L?) + AWD making around 400+hp. Not sure if the "drift mode" slated for the FoRS will appear on a possible SHO successor - definitely NOT for Lincoln - but supposedly was able to get the big car to go "sideways".

The smaller eco 6 is the one used in the current Flex and Explorer Sport.  365 HP.  The Raptor is expected to have the same engine with a tune and some exhaust mods to get it to HP rating in the mid to upper 400.
