Anti-lag turbo system

Hey guys, i was looking at a forced induction route for my mustang, once i get the money of course, and im falling in love with the turbo and the sound it produces. I was doing research on what kind of turbo would be best for me and i stumbled across the anti-lag turbo system, this system seems to be pretty good if you plan to rally your car and besides.. It shoots flames because it has a later combustion time in the combustion chamber to keep the turbo spooled up and burns the extra gasoline in the intake manifold and exhaust. Anyways i was wondering if anyone had this system and if they like it? Are there any backdraws or something i should do to my car before putting this system on? Thanks!

First, so you know where I'm coming from; used to have a heavily modded 04 SRT4 with a 40 trim - dat ***** would roll 25lbs and surprise vettes all the time.

From what i know of the anti-lag turbos is that it is incredibly bad for your cats and mpg. Traditionally, the larger the snail, the slower the spool so the smart thing to do is find that happy medium between spool time and impeller size. Just off the cuff, I'd bet the 5.0 displaces a ****ton more air than my 2.4L did, so a larger impeller would manage fine without the same amount of lag.

I'm not sure what size the Hellion kit is, but I imagine it works just fine if kids are getting +1000hp out of full builds with it. With any big turbo system, I recommend forged internals, upgraded fuel pump/rails, and a good amount of time on a dyno. You might start looking into shoring up your transmission and clutch, too.

Anti lag turbo setups basically just dump a ton of fuel through the engine and change the timing to get what's essentially a backfire through the turbo. It is extremely rough on the turbo.

This system was designed for small engines with big turbos to prevent turbo lag off the line. On a V8, this system would be about useless unless your pushing for well over 800rwhp.

If you want turbos, this is the route you want to go.

On 3 Performance - Turbo Kits for Ford Mustangs

You may also want to consider John Lund Performance, they are in the testing phase of a TT system for 2011+ 5.0's

You can also go Helion but $$$$$

Well, I've run all types of boosted set up and nitrous too but what you are suggesting is not necessarily a good idea for your Mustang. As others said, it'd be hard on parts, inefficient, and possibly dangerous... Twin turbos, if sized right will hardly lag, which gives you time to get rolling w/o spinning your tires. Good luck and be safe

If you go turbo, you should build the engine up. Otherwise the stock internals aren't going to last.

This anit-lag system sounds more like a two-step? You can ****** the timing to whatever you want in order to hold a certain RPM. The retarded timing would also boost up the turbo if you have one.

Although, my favorite anti-lag turbo system is made by Nitrous Express... It's called a 100shot

^^^Not suggested for stock engines or engines running on 93octane haha!
