When SBD first started the turbo kit project for this platform, they had one simple goal, OEM look & fitment.
This meant a cast manifold adapter, no hand welded designs, to prevent cracking from heat cycling and to insure fitment was 100% spot-on every time.
This meant retaining the factory air box, where Ford spent a ton of time & money getting the MAP sensor placement perfect for proper engine tuning.
This meant properly matched turbo sizing to insure the broadest powerband possible, for a car that performed on the street & drag strip.
This meant a twin scroll ball-bearing turbocharger & twin scroll manifold to insure fast spool & quick transient response between gear shifts. (Particularly important for those with manual transmissions.)
This meant rock solid boost control using a TurboSmart Gen 5 External Hypergate Wastegate.
This meant an Vent-To-Atmosphere External Wastegate Dump Tube, to reduce backpressure and free up HP for those wanting to retain the factory exhaust for cost savings.
After two years of 3D printed manifolds to perfect fitment, various testing of turbo CHRA and turbine housings to insure not only quick spool, but peak HP output….SBD now offers the product you see today.
Speed By Design is VERY excited to announce the release of their 2015+ Ford Mustang Turbo Kit.
The Stage 1 Turbocharger will support over 500whp (Conservative) on a built motor.
On their 2016 Ford Mustang Development vehicle, they made 455whp @ 29 PSI on a 100% factory internals engine on E85 Ethanol Fuel with an Auxiliary (Port) Injection Kit.
This was through a 6R80 Automatic Transmission, so you can expect the MT82 6 speed manual transmission to dyno slightly (3% roughly) higher via less drivetrain loss.
