Well, we all knew it was just a matter of time. The aftermarket for the late-model Ford Mustang is one of the most carnivorous we’ve ever seen in any automotive spectrum. The latest tweak from a set of Mustang modification nuts comes in the form of a turbocharger for the all-new 5.0-liter equipped 2011 Ford Mustang GT. Utilizing a solid platform from Borg Warner, the Fastlane folks tweaked a 2011 GT with the 5.0 V8 to safely pump out over 530 rwhp and 500 rwtq…on a mere 6 to 7 pounds of boost. That’s awesome!

FASTLANE FIRST TO TURBO-CHARGE NEW MUSTANG 5.0
Houston-Based Tuner Adds 120 Ponies to Ford’s Vaunted Pony Car
Houston, TX (July 2010)—Using the proven reliable technology of Borg Warner’s 72mm S400 Turbo, Fastlane has tackled the new 5.0 Mustang GT and has developed the ultimate Turbo System. Having already proven their turbo system savvy in the 2010 Camaro SS, Fastlane wanted to be the first aftermarket manufacturer and tuning shop to boost the new Mustang GT.
Fastlane’s new Ford Mustang GT Turbo package will conservatively produce a blistering 530+ RWHP and 500 RWTQ on the six-speed model with only six-seven psi boost.
“Fastlane was founded on modifying Mustangs,” says Nick Field, Co-Owner of Fastlane. “We’ve gone back to our roots with this turbo package and have made the new Mustang GT even more significant.”

* Low boost – 6-7psi
* At least 120 additional RWHP
* Designed for stock engines
* Quiet, reliable operation with big block power
* 72mm Borg Warner extended tip turbo, front mount air to air bar and plate style intercooler
* 304 stainless steel tubing, which is mandrel bent for great flow (This kit boasts direct bolt-on with no cutting or modifications needed).
* On a conservative streetable tune of 6-7 psi, this kit produces at least 530RWHP and 500 RWTQ
Beyond the remarkable turbo system, Fastlane’s R&D department has developed additional go-fast performance items, raising the 360 hp at the wheels to the following:
