2013 Shelby GT500 5.8 Engine Build-up

The 2013 Shelby GT500s are out and we have several in our shop now to do upgrades. Follow along as we upgrade this 2013 to 1000hp!

First step is to remove the engine and disassemble. The 5.8 Engine has a larger 3. bore, the same thing we have been doing for yaers with our own cylinder block. The factory pistons are very nice and won’t require upgrading, however, we will be charging the connecting rods and upgrading the fasteners to ARP Studs, along with polishing the crankshaft and chamfering the oil passages in the crankshaft. This car only has 13 miles on it and the bearings are already scored from the rough edges of the oil passages on the crank.

Stay Tuned!
