Boost Works Turbocharges A Ford Mustang GT To 1,600 Wheel Horsepower: Video

When last we checked, the current, sixth-generation Ford Mustang GT offered up to 435 horsepower from its 5.0-liter Coyote V8 (although more power is on the way for 2018).

So how is it that a speed shop out of Katy, Texas is able to crank peak output to a positively face-melting 1,600 horsepower – nearly four times the factory rating? By turbocharging the bejeebus out of it, of course.

Australian website PerformanceDrive recently uncovered the video above, in which Boost Works conducts a dynamometer test of a customer Ford Mustang GT with the shop’s Stage 2 twin-turbo kit installed on a built/sleeved Coyote long block. Fueled by Ignite 114 (90% ethanol, 10% gasoline) and a lust for pure, unbridled power, this Mustang GT put down 1,596 wheel horsepower at 33.5 psi. The shop says that might just be a new record for the S550 Ford Mustang GT with the 6R80E automatic.

Ready to see and hear a Mustang GT that could blow the doors off of a Bugatti Veyron? Watch the video above. And for more on Boost Works’ Stage 2 twin-turbo kit, visit the company’s website.
