The Shelby 1000 is back for 2015 and later Mustang GT. The package begins with the replacement of the stock V8 with a 5.2L supercharged engine that features bestof-the-best internals, a traditional 90-degree crank, modified GT350 cylinder heads and a 4.5L Whipple supercharger. Shelby adds a litany of equipment necessary to make or sustain a thousand ponies, from a new high flow fuel system to an intercooler, transmission, ECÚ and tuning. Then its craftsmen widen the car's track with custom bodywork.
