The 2011 Mustang GT is here with its 5.0-liter engine and 412-hp, so if you've got an older model, chances are it's feeling a bit underwhelming lately. The solution might just be Turbonetics' turbo kit, made specifically for the 2005-2009 Ford Mustang GT

Boasting a 50-state CARB legal EO # and delivering 550-hp, Turbonetics' turbo kit offers smooth and efficient power output without sacrificing reliability.

It's easy to install with no wires to cut, splice or connect. It utilizes all the factory accessories and sensors and a custom ECU re-flash (Diablo Sport Tuner) is included so no tuning is required. At the heart of the kit is a T4 custom ceramic ball bearing turbo while a Spearco front mount intercooler fills up the Mustang GT's front bumper. Additional fuel comes from eight drop-in fuel injectors.

The turbo kit is only available for manual transmission models. Pricing has not yet been announced.
