Muscle Car Mastery: A 1300HP Turbo 6 Mustang, 8.52-second at 164mph in Full Street Trim
The Ford Mustang Turbo 6 is a high-performance version of the Ford Mustang, which is a popular sports car. It features a turbocharged 6-cylinder engine that provides increased power and acceleration compared to the base model Mustang. The specific specifications and details of the Mustang Turbo 6 will depend on the year and trim level of the vehicle.
When it comes to high-speed performance, it is uncommon to see a 1960s Ford Mustang competing in single-digit races on the drag strip. While the Mustang’s platform has the potential for speed, it is likely that the cost of obtaining and maintaining the necessary parts is a deterrent for many enthusiasts.
In this instance, we have the opportunity to see a rare example of a 1960s Ford Mustang competing in drag racing and achieving an impressive 8.52-second run. Even more noteworthy is the fact that this powerful machine is equipped with a six-cylinder engine, and has been further enhanced by the inclusion of a Garrett GTX45R turbocharger.
”John’s crazy fast Ford Mustang street car is back at the track and runs yet another personal best time. The car is powered by a Tunnel Vision 4L Aussie Ford 6-cylinder SOHC engine and boosted by a Garrett turbocharger, Haltech E85 fuel system, Preson Powerglide and a leaf sprung rear end. The car was driven home after the event through radial tyres.”
Watch the powerful vehicle perform in the video below, featuring its full street configuration and Powerglide automatic transmission. The classic vehicle definitely certainly knows how to make an impression.
