2011 Mustang Engine Information – 330 cubic inch V-8 (5.4 L Supercharged Ford Modular V8)
Ford’s Modular 5.4L DOHC V8
The 2011 Shelby GT500 got an engine update with an all-new 5.4 L aluminum engine which was 102 lb (46 kg) lighter than the previous cast-iron engine and uses Ford-patented plasma-coating technology (Plasma transferred wire arc).
The inventors of PTWA received the 2009 IPO National Inventor of the Year award. This technology was initially patented and developed by inventors from Flame-Spray. The technology was subsequently improved upon by Ford and Flamespray.
With the engine updates, not only has performance improved to 550 bhp (558 PS; 410 kW) at 6,200 rpm and 510 lb⋅ft (691 N⋅m) at 4,500 rpm of torque, but the GT500’s gas mileage has improved also.
