Eight Turbo Ford Mustang Hits The Dyno With Mixed Results: Video

Kyle Williams, or Boosted Lifestyle as he’s known on YouTube, has been building some crazy vehicles for years now and documenting the whole process on his channel. Williams has a particular affinity for turbos, having previously strapped four of them to a Honda Civic. With his latest project, Williams decided to double that for good measure and created this – an eight turbo Ford Mustang.

Williams previously drag raced a rather normal (compared to this) Mustang, but it sadly met an early demise when it hit the wall because a car that ran before him sprayed coolant all over the track. Thus, over the harsh Canadian winter, he’s been hard at work transforming this 1995 model year pony car into the eight turbo Ford Mustang we see before us.

The car was fitted with the old Mustang’s 5.3L LS V8 and ran a best pass of 8.6 seconds at 160 miles-per-hour with a single 88mm turbo. Obviously, strapping eight turbos to a car requires a bit more engineering, and a lot of thought went into this build, including the robust oiling system that’s required to keep everything properly lubricated.

Williams had a goal of hitting the 1,000 horsepower mark with his new setup and even slapped on a 200 horsepower shot of nitrous just in case he couldn’t quite get there. Unfortunately, he runs into some issues on the dyno that prove to be too insurmountable to overcome. However, Williams calculates that if the car would have held steady at its max 33 pounds of boost, it would have made 750 horsepower without the nitrous.

Impressively, Williams reportedly built the car on a $3,000 budget with $80 turbos. And even though this dyno day didn’t end the way he necessarily wanted it to, we’re certain that he’s already working to sort out the Mustang’s issues with an eye toward redemption.

Brett's lost track of all the Fords he's owned over the years and how much he's spent modifying them, but his current money pits include an S550 Mustang and 13th gen F-150.

  1. Why do you guys always feature Chevy powered Fords? We don’t like that. We can see that anywhere else. What gives?

  2. That’s what happens when you put a Chev motor in a Ford, it gets rejected. Just like it should be, another failure.
    Keep it all blue oval, please.

  3. I’m sorry y’all. That ain’t no Ford. It’s a freakin’ bowtie boat anchor with a bunch of eBay bolt-on junk.

  4. This takes stupidity to an all new level. Reminds me of the old days when guys would strap eight carbs onto an engine and couldn’t figure out how to tune them.
