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.

The Hyundai Genesis Coupe 2.0T (the R-Spec model in particular) was built to appeal to buyers who like to modify their vehicles. One of the top tuners in the United States, AMS Performance, has begun developing performance parts for the Genesis Coupe 2.0T – a car that until now has been mostly ignored by the tuning industry. Among the first products they’ve released for the 2.0T is a front mount intercooler kit, a direct bolt-on solution that increases internal airflow by 60%.
Combined with AMS’s soon to be released turbo kit and the requisite fuel system upgrades, Genesis Coupe 2.0T owners can look forward to a serious increase in horsepower, one that should allow them to give Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution X and Subaru Impreza WRX STI owners a run for their money.
We’re excited to see a reputable tuner getting started on a Genesis Coupe project car, as this Hyundai has a lot of potential and in 2.0T form bringing back rear-drive performance at a lower price point.
We’ll be sure to report back when AMS is “done” with the 2.0T build-up and we encourage you to follow the full development process by AMS, detailed on their blog.
