And you most definitely could make use of all 1200 of those horses at the strip. I can't imagine what sort of times this would put down, insane....
According to the article they bored out a 5.4L into a 5.8L. I don't know the size of the 650hp Shelby though.
I used a website that calculates, in theory it should go 8.6s in the 1/4, but I'm guessing more like 9s.
