2018 Mustang Engine Information – 315 cubic inch V8 (5.2L Ford Voodoo V8)
The Voodoo V8
The Voodoo is a 5.2-liter, naturally aspirated V8 engine from Ford Motor used for the Ford Mustang Shelby GT350 and Ford Mustang Shelby GT350R. Featuring a dual overhead cam (DOHC) design, in a V configuration, the Ford Voodoo architecture has been part of the Ford Modular family since 2015. This engine is hand-built and was specifically designed for the Shelby GT350 and GT350R.
Interestingly, the Voodoo engine utilizes a flat plane crankshaft. This reduces the engine’s overall weight while allowing it to rev faster and higher. The unique configuration also gives this engine a distinguished exhaust note when compared with other American V8 engines.
