Ford Mustang’s 4.6l V8 engine gets a turbo kick from Turbonetics
The current Mustang GT is powered by a 5.0 Liter Coyote V8 engine with 412 HP and 390 lb-ft of torque, which is all fine and dandy for anyone whose love for Mustang just recently began, but what about the loyal owners of the previous version of the galloping horse? To those, we say, here’s a turbo kit made especially for you.
Turbonetics is now offering a turbo system for the 2005 to 2009 model Mustang that takes the 300 ponies found under the hood and adds 150 more! Even with a total of 550hp, the 05-09 Mustang is still street-legal in all 50 states, all for just $7,399.
The Turbonetics kit includes a modified ECU, modified fuel and timing maps, ceramic ball bearing turbocharger, Spearco front mount intercooler, and T304 Stainless TIG Welded Exhaust Piping. Aluminum TIG welded and polished intake piping stretches from the turbocharger to the intercooler and the throttle body, and a silicon molded hose allows for connection to the stock airbox. Other features include a high flow aftermarket air filter used in a stock configuration and hardware kits including fasteners, fittings, gaskets, clamps, hoses, and oil lines.
