About Episode 142

The GT350 is a new kind of Mustang. Track-ready from the factory, its V-8 makes 526 hp and some of the best 8200-rpm noises you’ll ever hear. On this episode of Ignition, presented by Tire Rack, Jason Cammisa explains what makes this flat-plane-crankshaft different from a regular V-8 using a set of drums. Then, measures the engine’s output on a DynoJet dynamometer. Even if you don’t know what a dyno is, you’ll love the sounds this engine makes – and the shots of race-car driver Randy Pobst hammering this special car around Chuckwalla Valley Raceway. Could it be that this American muscle car is actually a better driver’s car than most sports cars? We think so – find out why.
