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.
