LSA Trans Am vs Boosted Coyote Mustang – $3900 Street Dig Race

October 7th, 2021

It’s big money street racing from Southern California (Mexico). This video gives us an up-close look at the Cuban Coyote Ford Mustang and the Boosted Bird Pontiac Trans Am. These are two serious competitors looking for a serious payday. Let’s join the action.

Boosted Bird has been outfitted with a supercharged 6.2-liter LSA motor. This is the power plant used in many late model GM performance vehicles (such as the Cadillac CTS-V, Corvette ZR1 and Camaro ZL1). In stock trim, this engine can pump out 650hp and 650 lb.-ft. of torque. I bet Boosted Bird ain’t stock.

The bright blue Ford is powered by a 5.0-liter modular engine, known as a Coyote. A typical factory Coyote motor is capable of producing 460hp and 445 lb.-ft. of torque. Cuban Coyote adds a big turbocharger that could easily double factory horsepower and torque. Both cars are rear-wheel drive.

After an interesting ride to the race site, the competitors are finally lined up and ready for burnouts.

With the Cuban Coyote in the left lane and Boosted Bird on the right, the light drops and – thud – the Trans Am never gains traction and the Mustang gaps him by a train length. Money changes hands and Boosted Bird limps away to race another day.
