Let Battle Of The All-American Turbos Commence

Place your bets.

The focus of this drag racing video is this badass 2008 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8, which has been fitted with a 76-mm turbocharger, and sports forged internals on the 6.1-liter Hemi that comes mated to a Paramount transmission. With the owner admitting his personal best was 10.82, he then goes out and clocks a time of 10.79 @ 124 mph at Ozark Raceway Park. The grocery getter then comes up against a 5.0 Mustang that’s also been turbocharged and is running on slicks.

It’s a pretty even matchup, but look closely at the Stang in one of the runs. We’re pretty sure that’s the exhaust falling off.
