It includes uprating the supercharger to a Ford Racing Whipple unit, helping the new all-aluminum 5.4-liter Ford V-8 make 750 bhp, roughly 150 more than our earlier test car.
The turn-in is much crisper than on the stock GT500, and the tail-happy attitude that results from the wicked-up supercharger makes the Super Snake much easier to rotate in a corner.
