Garrett Twin Turbochargers - A Bigger Playground - Garrett Mustangs
Bothwell Motorsports And Team Garrett Find A New Home With A Cool Pair Of Mustangs
Takin' It To The Streets
While Bothwell Motorsports and Team Garrett have had great success with their Outlaw 10.5 program, they've also put time and effort into developing a turbo package for street-Mustang enthusiasts that's now available through select distributors. With Ron Townsend behind the wheel, a near identical street clone debuted at FFW Atlanta in Street Ford and made it all the way to the semifinals for a rather impressive debut.
"This Mustang uses a special prototype twin-turbo kit that Garrett put together," Ron says about the car. "It uses twin GT28R water-cooled, ball-bearing turbochargers with internal wastegates that can produce over 500 hp. The car uses stock engine internals with an air-to-air, front-mount intercooler and a specially calibrated chip. The result is an essentially stock car that's streetable, yet still capable of running 11.50s at almost 120 mph on pump gas. It's a real blast - I'm looking forward to getting one for myself!"
