The 2013 Ford Shelby GT500 Mustang

Corsa Performance Exhaust adds 35hp, 47tq to the 2013 Ford GT500 Mustang

This morning I had a chance to speak with a representative from Corsa Performance Exhaust about their new exhaust package for the 2013 Ford Shelby GT500 Mustang – a setup which adds 35 horsepower and 47lb-ft of torque to the 200+ mile per hour super muscle car.

If you are somehow unfamiliar with the 2013 Ford Shelby GT500 Mustang – it is the latest collaboration between the people at Ford’s SVT high performance division and the minds at Shelby American – with this incredible American muscle car churning out 662 horsepower and 631lb-ft of torque. This makes the 2013 GT500 the most powerful production Mustang of all time but it also makes it the fastest with a top speed of over 200 miles per hour. However, in the muscle car segment you can never have enough power and that is where the folks at Corsa Performance Exhaust come into play with their new exhaust setup for the 2013 GT500.

Prior to installing their new exhaust system for the 2013 GT500 Mustang, Corsa strapped the modern Shelby Cobra onto a dyno for some baseline runs and the results were impressive with peak stock figures of 595.53 horsepower and 564.34lb-ft of torque at the rear wheels. That represents a very impressive drivetrain loss figure of just 10% between the back of the crankshaft and the sticky rubber that puts that power to the ground.
