Joining The Class Of Turbo Mustangs

Those that love the Ford Mustang do not spend too much time driving their car before they start looking into the possibilities of customizing it. Turbo Mustangs are an elite club that has owners, which believe in putting as much power into their street-legal machine as they can get by with, while bordering on racetrack performance. It is not unusual to hear about twin turbo and supercharged Ford Mustangs, but what might be more unusual are those that have no desire to change anything about their stock model.

Joining The Class Of Turbo Mustangs. You can find Turbo Mustangs, regardless of the year because there are many aftermarket products available for different models. Consider that last year it was a twin-turbo powered 2003 Cobra that walked away with the overall win of the “King of the Street” competition by 5.0 Mustang Magazine. Turbo chargers are becoming more popular than the superchargers because there are a number of advantages.

For one thing, you can get more power boost with better efficiency. Power-sucking superchargers and regular turbo chargers are almost “left in the dust” by the remote-mounted twin turbo systems, which can be installed in eight hours, but they do not increase your under-the-hood temperature because it installs on factory mounts, under the vehicle. This means more room under the hood and it also means you do not need to worry about melting your hoses, because of extreme temperatures.

That does not mean that turbo Mustangs do not come with a variety of options, including single turbo chargers or superchargers. Many pros endorse the remote-mounted placement for these reasons, however. When it comes to getting more power and boost than you ever thought possible with a street machine, you can still enjoy improved fuel efficiency and performance sound with these types of options. It is a matter of checking out the best option for your particular needs, but many customer reviews indicate you get more room under the hood to work on your engine, if you consider the remote placement. If you want to boost the power of your vehicle, your muscle car can enjoy several options.

When you are ready to take your ride to the next level, you can get as much horsepower possible with the right turbo charger kit, whether single or twin. While there are some of the kits that are not compatible with specialized Mustangs, including the Shelby and Roush, it is possible to get a 250 horsepower gain for other models! There are a variety of ways to increase the performance of your vehicle, but if you want to take your street rod to the next level, this might be the easiest way to do it.

You can expect to spend a few thousand dollars for the kit, so it is not the most affordable enhancement to consider, unless you have an overwhelming urge for more power. Most enthusiasts consider the advantages of turbo Mustangs, when they want a vehicle that is so intimidating it gets few challenges from anybody, but the best street rods on the road.
