2015-2021 Ford Mustang Turbochargers
Over many decades, automotive and Mustang enthusiasts alike have enjoyed turbocharger technology's progression to add horsepower, performance, and boost to their ride. Luckily for S550 Mustang owners, this technology has helped it become complete racehorses in their own right. With the incredible evolution of Ford's infamous 5.0L Coyote V8, the S550 Mustang has been able to set records on the drag strip thanks to companies like Hellion Turbo. They have been able to help drag racers systematically change the landscape for big horsepower and torque throughout the Mustang community.
Unlike a supercharger, a turbo doesn't have to rely on engine power to make horsepower; it uses exhaust gas from the exhaust manifold to create forced induction, which turns into boost, resulting in more horsepower for your engine. Turbochargers are much more efficient than superchargers due to the non-reliance on the serpentine belt and the ability to make power on demand at any time through a boost controller. Typically if you are an individual seeking to make significant power upwards of 1,000 horsepower for your S550 Mustang, enthusiasts tend to turn to a turbocharger system for drag racing applications. The downfall is that they can be tough to tune and demand the correct air/fuel ratio. When the tune is perfected, and parameters are correct, be ready to hook and book down the quarter-mile with ease!n
