If you know the history of America’s sportiest car, then it’s very likely that you’ve never seen one with a trailer until today.
The Ford Mustang is not a car you’d buy if you’re going to tow a trailer or motor home, although it’s fully capable of doing so with its powerful engines.
However, in the United States anything is possible, and in the video you can see a Ford Mustang equipped with a modified turbodiesel towing a recreational boat.
On Westen Champlin ‘s YouTube channel , he decided to do an engine swap on his Ford Mustang some time ago.
We don’t know if it was previously equipped with a 2.3-liter four-cylinder EcoBoost engine or a 5.0-liter naturally aspirated V8, but either way, in its place is now a turbodiesel 5.9-liter 6-cylinder Cummins turbodiesel.
Originally, this engine develops 233 HP of power and a maximum torque of almost 600 Nm, which is enough to pull almost anything, including a speedboat.
This particular Mustang develops even more power, because it has some modifications, and as you can see with the naked eye, there is a huge turbine and no cover.
It is not known how much power it develops with the modifications, probably around 400 hp.
What we can see and what is special is a huge column of black smoke coming out of the exhaust installed like a chimney from the engine compartment.
The engine change was not done out of necessity, but simply because more cargo could be pulled.
In an earlier video from the channel, the host conducted some performance tests and found that the Ford Mustang Turbodiesel completed the 1/4 mile in 13.2 seconds, which is 0.7 seconds faster than the Ford Mustang EcoBoost, but also 1.1 seconds slower than the Mustang GT V8. Don’t miss the video to see it in action, though the clip mostly focuses on the boat being towed by the modified Mustang.
