Ford’s EcoBoost Mustang makes for the ideal starting point when considering the ambitious aftermarket project. However, all the boost play allowed by a turbine under the hood can have dire consequences, as showcased by the drag strip pony we are here to show you.
The forced-fed ‘Stang in question had been taken far, far away from its factory setup and while we are not aware of the turbo-four’s exact output, and we can tell you the coupe could beat also-tuned Mustang GTs in the 1/4 mile.
In fact, you can see the EcoBoost delivering low-11s passes in the video below – keep in mind that, in factory trim, the 2.3-liter turbo-powered pony is the low-14s car, while the standard V8 Mustang needs around 13 seconds for the job.
Alas, it didn’t take too many runs until a turbocharged Ford went into limp oil spill mode, making quite the mess in the starting area of the drag strip that had seen it achieving its temporary hero status throughout the day.
Don’t get us wrong, such the unfortunate even doesn’t mean you shouldn’t pursue your downsizing dreams. And you should pay attention to the extra boost vs. supporting mods equations, as the poor ratio in this area is usually what causes issues such as the one we can see here.
That is sooo crazy. More crazyness in the next video below!
