Turbo Four-Cylinder vs. All-Motor V8 – 60 MPH Street Hits

December 2nd, 2022

Tonight, these brave competitors risk shame, humiliation and hurt feelings as they stroll onto the interstate (in Mexico). Allegedly, the owner of a modified V8 Ford Mustang 5.0 has been overheard talking a load of smack about a certain four-cylinder Mopar/DSM turbo car. True or not, they are about to lay it all on the line in a head-to-head grudge race. It’ll be a rolling start initiated at 60 mph.

The Dodge Neon SRT-4 is a bit of a sleeper. In fact, with four doors and an unassuming exhaust note, this grocery getter is almost comatose. Don’t get it twisted, the modifications performed in this car have yielded significant results. In stock condition, the SRT-4 was only capable of producing 215hp with the turbocharged inline 2.4-liter engine. Featured in this video is a car that has an upgraded turbocharger, performance camshafts and it has been tuned to run on E85 fuel. Seems to be making pretty good power now.

On the other hand, the Mustang 5.0 is equipped with a naturally aspirated V8 motor. From the factory, it could generate 450hp and 410 lb.-ft. of torque. This car has also been upgraded with aftermarket parts. They include a performance camshaft, exhaust and tuning.

Let’s take it to the streets and see who’s talking smack after the racing is over.
