1,500 HP Turbo Mustang Runs 8-Second Quarter Mile

This Mustang is a freak of nature pushing out more than 1,500 hp. The car uses an improvisation of Ford's 5.0L Coyote V8.

This Mustang is a freak of nature. With more than 1,500 hp, it’s one of the most powerful cars we’ve ever seen; and it’s all street legal.

The car uses an improvisation of Ford’s 5.0 liter Coyote V8. However, this owner has increased the displacement to an “undisclosed” level. Employing a turbocharger delivering up to 21 pounds of boost and a huge trunk mounted intercooler to keep the apparatus running cool, this Mustang is certainly one worth examining under the hood.

Hitting the drag-strip, the car makes the quarter mile in about 8.15 seconds. And the best part? The license plate reads: TURBOSS.

Silv-O-Lite Hypereutectic Pistons

Silv o lite pistons

A set of Silv-O-Lite Hypereutectic Pistons will help make rebuilding the Modular V8 engine in your 1997 to 2020 F-150 more affordable. The pistons use an aluminum alloy containing 15%-16% silicon. This makes them stronger than standard cast pistons with less thermal expansion and more resistance to scuffs and seizures in the cylinder bores. The alloy also reduces ring groove wear and resists cracking in the crown area where operating temperatures are severe. The additional silicon also helps keep heat in the combustion chamber and prevents heat transfer. That’s a lot of piston for the money.
