How Do You Make A GT350 Faster? Add Twin Turbos!

  How Do You Make A GT350 Faster? Add Twin Turbos! If there’s one thing that goes together better than peas and carrots it’s boost and Coyote engines. The power-per-cubic-inch gains under pressure are not matched by any other modern OEM V8. Even Chevy is talking about building a dual overhead cam engine for the next generation Corvette. Could the Coyote have been the catalyst for the Bow Tie brigade? Research Research New Used New & Used Make (e.g. Mazda) Model (e.g. CX-5) At 12:1 compression, the big question on every blue oval fan's mind is will the 5.

The performance world changed drastically in 2011 when Ford released its latest Mustang powerplant, the Coyote 5.0. The days of the vaunted 5.0L moniker had returned, but this time the famous displacement was attached to a high-tech, overhead-cam engine with four valves per cylinder. It was no surprise that Modular Motorsports Racing, known to the world as MMR, instantly began developing new parts, pieces, and complete engines with the new platform. They are, after all, one of the biggest parts manufacturers and suppliers for Ford's various Modular engine platforms.

Spied! Mid-Engine Chevrolet Corvette Caught Winter Testing With ZR1

  Spied! Mid-Engine Chevrolet Corvette Caught Winter Testing With ZR1 <p>Our best look at the mid-engine 'Vette so far</p>The shooter says GM tried desperately to conceal the mid-engine Corvette's bodywork, covering the car with a black sheet and attempting to block it from view with two Silverado HD trucks. But when the sheet inevitably did come off, it was impossible to hide the mid-engine car's proportions, especially next to a front-engine Corvette. Seeing the mid-engine Corvette and the ZR1 side by side, we can more clearly see the differences between them. The mid-engine Corvette's hood is much shorter than the C7's, and the whole car looks like it's been stretched from the B-pillar back.

The group at MMR, led by Mark Luton, is not shy in pushing 4.6/5.4 Modular engines with their in-house race cars, so it was no surprise MMR continues race-engine development with the Coyote package. Pushing horsepower levels measured in thousands, the team quickly found the weak link in the factory Coyote block. "Once we started pushing toward 2,000hp, we started having problems," Luton confessed as he described MMR's path to the Gen X engine series. "We started to crack the blocks in the valley, between the cylinders, and essentially the block was just crumbling away." Until the Gen X, the only major block modification was to add a set of aftermarket cylinder sleeves.

Luton explained MMR's clean-sheet-of-paper engine drawings: "We went into the design concept [for the Gen X] with a solution for those problems and also to address other issues with the engine platform, like the lack of displacement." The previous MMR race engine, dubbed the 351X and based on the 5.4/5.8 Modular family, had no problem spooling a pair of 88mm turbochargers, but the smaller Coyote engine struggled, leading MMR to increase the displacement. As Luton noted, adding nitrous to spool the turbos is a big no-no in the arenas they compete in, like the NMCA Drag Racing Series.

How to Build A Bullet-Proof Coyote Engine For 1000-Plus Horsepower

  How to Build A Bullet-Proof Coyote Engine For 1000-Plus Horsepower With the release of the Coyote, Ford perfected the modular engine platform. Available for the past seven years, enthusiasts have done virtually everything there is to do with the powerplant. It has run 6s in the quarter-mile, won numerous road racing championships, and piloted drifters to podium finishes.In earlier segments, we covered the block prep needed to reliably make more than 1,000 horsepower in a Ford Coyote engine. That was but a sneak peek of the intentions for this engine. Now, HOT ROD's first Coyote engine build is ready to be assembled.

The Gen X block is made from billet aluminum, mostly due to strength but also due to manufacturing solutions. "The first step was to use a better material. We had looked at casting a block, but settled on a billet one. That allowed us to bring it to market sooner than a cast one," Luton said. Also, the low production volume of the Gen X also plays a factor since this isn't the right block for every application.

The bore spacing remains the same as a Coyote engine, enabling OEM cylinder heads to be used, but they did increase the deck height to address the displacement concerns. Other notable highlights of the billet block include a larger crankcase area to accommodate a longer-stroke crankshaft. Additionally, MMR incorporated larger main cap studs—the inner studs are 1/2-inch and the outer ones are 7/16-inch—and there are four side bolts instead of two for the main caps. The head studs are increased in size with a unique 9/16 stud that necks down to 1/2-inch threads that go into the block. According to Luton, they can torque the heads to 135 lb-ft on the torque wrench, and it works just fine in MMR's 3,100hp Pro Modified engine.

5 Weird Engine Swaps That Need to Happen

  5 Weird Engine Swaps That Need to Happen Everybody loves an engine swap.Everybody loves an engine swap, but let's be honest: There are only so many LSX, 2JZ-GTE, and K-series swaps we can see before we lose interest. Yes, the three engines I just listed are superb engines, and rightfully find themselves in cars never built for them. That said, an LSX-swapped 240SX is about as fresh and surprising as the New York Yankees being a winning team. Yawn.

This finishes off the construction of our long-block, and the next step in our project will be to stuff all of this blingy goodness between the framerails of Wild E. Coyote . We’ll be doing that in the upcoming weeks, so stay tuned for the article detailing the engine install, turbocharger system install

Short-Block

The MMR Gen X billet engine block features custom cylinder sleeves with a flange on top for added rigidity. The bore is 3.700 inches and the pistons are custom Manley forged ones with an unspecified compression ratio. Custom forged-aluminum Bill Miller Engineering connecting rods were described as "long." The billet-forged crankshaft is from Winberg and has a 4.165-inch-long stroke. Clevite engine bearings are used to help the crank spin freely while Total Seal rings fill the gap between the Manley pistons and cylinder walls. A billet front cover has been designed to fit the taller deck block, in addition to newly designed chains and tensioners on the front of the engine.

Cylinder Heads/Camshafts

MMR turned to Shelby GT350 cylinder heads, which have been ported to match the flow volume from the Garrett turbochargers. The OEM castings have also been dry-decked, meaning the water holes were sealed up and the face of it finished with an O-ring for head-gasket sealing. Surprisingly, the valves are stock stainless steel, but they have been outfitted with Manley valvesprings. A quartet of MMR camshafts, cut by Comp Cams, utilize the OEM followers and rocker arms. MMR uses its heavy-duty secondary chains and a special MMR chain tensioner on the driver-side head. There is also the company's phaser delete, saving 2.6 pounds of rotating weight in the valvetrain and helping the engine rev quicker.

The Mercedes-AMG Project One Hypercar Will Have 1020 HP, Four Electric Motors

  The Mercedes-AMG Project One Hypercar Will Have 1020 HP, Four Electric Motors We'll see it revealed later this year.That's the word from Automobile, which reports that the hypercar's 1020 horsepower comes from a 748-hp internal combustion engine and 408 hp from four (!) electric motors. The Project One will have an electric motor for each front wheel, allowing for aggressive torque vectoring, one bolted to the crankshaft, and one for the turbocharger.

We designed, machined, and tested this all in-house with very few exceptions (block was too large for our CNC machines, and we cannot machine a cam or crank here ). This is not two V8 engines bolted together – this is a one-piece billet block, one-piece billet crankshaft, one-piece cam

Intake Manifold

The intake is custom-made and MMR calls it the Hybrid R due to the billet runners and a sheetmetal plenum. The reason for the sheetmetal plenum is so the team can design it for the specific engine combinations rather than a one-size-fits-all manifold. The Pro Modified engine shown here is set up with two Wilson Manifolds 90mm throttle-bodies. Providing boost is the job of two Garrett GTX4718 turbochargers, each with an 88mm compressor wheel. They create 55 psi of boost, and Luton notes there is more on tap.

Fuel System/Ignition

Sixteen fuel injectors sit under a pair of MMR fuel rails, one rail for each side of the engine. Eight of the 16 fuel injectors check in at 220 lb-hr while the second set has a robust flow rating of 550 lb-hr. They are supplied plenty of VP Racing Fuels M1 methanol fuel, thanks to a Waterman Big Bertha mechanical fuel pump. A BigStuff3 engine-management system is combined with an MSD Ignition Grid system to keep the 3,100 hp under control. The Grid box interfaces with an MSD Mag 44 to kick out plenty of spark to light off the fuel and air concoction in the cylinders.

Exhaust

The Garrett turbochargers are mounted in the front grille to get plenty of air at 200 mph. MMR built a custom set of stainless-steel headers to spool the boost makers, and the primary tubes measure 1-7/8 inches while the turbine side of the compressor exhales into 5-inch-diameter dump tubes.

Drivetrain

A Rossler TH400 transmission backs the Coyote Gen X engine and, surprisingly, continues to be used in a three-speed configuration. At this level of power, most TH400s are run as a two-speed transmission. Luton said they short-shift the engine in First gear and it has proved to be a highly effective technique given the 0.967 sixty-foot times and sub-4-second timeslips. The transmission is driven by a Pro Torque EV1 torque converter and a carbon-fiber driveshaft sits on the output side of the transmission. The rear-end housing is a custom Pro Mod 9-inch by Mark Williams.
