Illustration for article titled Turbo Pinto!

The standard maximum hoonage in minimum-Pinto equation generally involves a Mustang II front subframe and some manner of Ford Windsor V8. Brad (known only as Brad) took a different tack, dropping in a Mustang SVO turbo mill. After he threw a rod through the side of the block, he went back to the drawing board and started out with a larger-displacement Ranger unit and beefed up the internals for heavier turbo duty. On the bottle, the car's seen 11.80 at the big end of the strip, and that was after lifting at 3/4-track due to a miss. Pure, unadulterated backyard awesomeness. We just hope he's got a fuel cell in that thing.
