Yeah the HP wars are rolling hard in the Ecoboost Moostang world. Highest hp was 557whp which was set a while back with 109 octane race gas and a very basic aux injection system. Now the car from this thread. Stock turbo EB Mustang goes 11.67 @ 116 With that build thread Here has a new ultimate goal to run 9's or faster. First time on the Dyno with the E85 setup the car laid down 652hp 605tq at the wheels which is a new record.

Here is The new quest for 9's build thread.

Mods are...

Total Cost including the car... 44K. Is that worth it over a blown GT?? I'm not sure. The ability to turn down the boost and get stupid good mileage on a daily drive or let the GF drive it like a stock car is nice. Either way its moving ahead by leaps and bounds.

Ford dealer out in OH is selling 727 HP GT's for 40K. Add another few grand for suspension and you've got a monster on your hands. Both a great cars, but, two different platforms of a mustang (N/A 5.0 vs a factory Turbo car) and each respond to mods differently.

Wouldn't mind a new ecoboost, but they do get very pricey and in stock form, I don't see them really beating 5.0's in terms of performance without being modded.

Ecoboost has the MPG advantage. If I want good MPG, I'll drive my wife's volt that gets over 40MPG very comfortably. Although, it is a plus to get good mileage.

I am just not getting the appeal of these. That build list looks like it is a balls to the wall build that, most likely, will run the same times as a base supercharged Coyote. Also, why are the first 4 mods on that list a tune :rofl:

Why turbo a fwd grand prix?
because it's different, and I enjoy it.

just like i enjoy the progress made in the OP with the ecoboost 4 cylinder mustangs.

i wasn't the one criticizing the mustang. :rofl:

That's the point he was making, it's not different, just like this high power 4 banger just doing it to be different

Having a 4 banger crank out that much horsepower is indeed impressive. I was hoping for a higher number with that build sheet though. I mean, all those tunes have to do something. I am sure they are not done with it. I feel like there are other turbo 4 bangers making more than that and they are older designs.

I get it. I just see it differently. When I modded the Lumina, I went to the 3800 instead of the 3100 because its better. I wouldn't toss a bunch of money at the 3100 to make the same power as the 3800 would. Just doesn't make sense. Same thing as the ecopoop Mustang. I get people throwing tunes, e85, and stuff like that at it. But to spend 10 grand on it to make it go just as fast as a lightly modded coyote just doesn't make sense to me. But that's me. I give them props for doing what they're doing tho

I'm sure they are limited by something at this point, the 4cylinder that always comes to mind when hi hp 4bangers is talked about is the evo motor, making huge power since way back in the day
