Fortunately, the 5.8 uses the same throttle body as the outgoing 5.4, so a throttle body swap is as simple as adding Ford Racing's twin 65mm unit (PN M-9926-CJ65; $649). Taken right from the Cobra Jet program, this billet beauty opens up each throttle bore by 5mm over the stock twin-60mm unit. That extra 10mm of flow delivered impressive gains at the back tires.

Evolution worked closely with ATI Performance Products to develop a 15-percent-overdriven Super Damper for the Trinity 5.8. Not only does this unit provide SFI certification for the racetrack, but it increases boost by 15 percent without reducing belt wrap on the supercharger pulley.

When you increase lower pulley size and start powershifting at the track, the cast factory belt tensioner can take a beating and fail. To head that off at the pass, Chuck and Steve installed a Thump Racing (www.thumpracing.com) billet-aluminum belt tensioner (PN PM-1005-GT500; $395) while reinstalling the belts.

After increasing the flow and boost on the front side of the engine, the '13 GT500 was forcing big power through the stock exhaust. To open things up, Evo chose ARH 1-7/8-inch long-tubes and a 3-inch X-shaped crossover ($1,600) to provide healthy power gains and especially generous extra grunt on the torque side.
