Lebanon Ford Selling New Mustang GTs with twin-turbo Hellion kits installed

Ridiculous, this dealer is well known for selling Roush kits pre-installed into new cars for customers at a reasonable price over MSRP.


Supposedly these turbos are good for 1200hp on the coyote platform which is nuts, but the car will require some bolstering, and internal upgrades to reach the limit.

No warranty, but if that doesn't bother you, these can be ordered and built for under $50k which is a steal for what you get.

" The turbocharging system has been developed by Hellion of Albuquerque, New Mexico in partnership with the Lebanon Ford Performance team and is designed to offer between 5 and 30 psi of boost. At 5 psi, which most owners run their cars at, according to Lebanon Ford, the car will be delivering 550 hp at the wheels. "

That aint a bad deal considering you'll be pretty close to $42k OTD on a 2017.

An additional $3k more for a TT setup with a few supporting mods?
