surely this engine will cost a LOT, and the DCT trans - although automatic, may be too big? Surely without traction control this would be a drift monster...
maybe someone is already planning on it? (not me!) LOL
It is rated at 785 HP and it will fit under the MK4 hood as the supercharger is low profile. Just an alternative to waiting for the crate version of the GT500 engine.
The naturally aspirated 5.2L engine is available as a crate engine for about $20K and is rated at 575 HP.
If I were to do something crazy, I would think the 5.2L should be plenty. Even if you could find a way to put 335s at the rear, it would light those up in an instant.
Back to the thought of just because you can, doesn't mean you should. HP bragging rights are just that, unless you can hook it up, just smoke and mirrors not performance.

Interestingly enough my Roush Supercharged Coyote puts out almost identical horsepower and torque for a lot less $$ and looks just as impressive.
