Though it certainly corners with less body roll than a factory Fusion, the T5 won't pulverize your kidneys in the process. In fact, the ride is surprisingly compliant, considering the proximity of the rubber to the wheel lips, and we never once heard any rubbing. Then again, we sometimes had the tunes turned up, boosted as they are with Rockford Fosgate P450.4 and P325.1 amps tucked in an under-floor compartment in the trunk. Beyond this entertainment aspect, MRT's Fusion T5 even has a trunk-mounted computer (in a separate compartment forward of the amps) paired with a wireless keyboard and motorized, touch-screen display, for something of a rolling office theme. It was a certified hit at the 2006 SEMA show.
We've always thought the Fusion had some terrific potential as an enthusiast's sporting sedan, and MRT's turbocharged Fusion T5 certainly confirms this suspi-cion. So call MRT if your Fusion is in need of reaction.

More AWD And Turbo Combos From MRTCombining boost and four-wheel traction turned out so well on the Fusion T5 that MRT also decided to apply the same philosophy to an Edge crossover SUV and a Lincoln MKZ sedan. MRT's "Leading Edge" and "Hot Rod Lincoln" SEMA projects both feature Turbonetics intercooled turbos amongst their many enhancements. Here are a couple of shots just to get your attention. We have plenty more photos and the full story on both standing by, so let us know if you'd be interested in seeing features on them.
