Chris “BoostedGT” Hamilton is preparing to assault the No Prep scene with his new 2005 Mustang GT, dubbed “The Equalizer.” It has been a collaboration with his girlfriend Kayla Morton and her dad; the team just spun up a Dynocom chassis dyno to obscene output with D-Bomb EFI Tuning handling the engine calibration with Holley EFI Dominator. We’d love to brag about the results, but all we can say is that it is well into the 4-digit realm. There is a full slate of No Prep events coming up, including a wild $102,000-to-win 28/275 event at Red River Raceway next week. The car will be versatile by swapping back and forth from 28s and big rollers, depending on the event.
The Equalizer went under the knife at Team Z Motorsports for a completely new back-half setup to handle the turbocharged horsepower that they stuffed between the strut towers. The noted Michigan-based chassis shop also added Motor City Composites carbon fiber doors, front-clip, and wing to keep weight to a minimum. Boosted Machine and Performance handled the 420ci engine build, complete with Brodix Neal cylinder heads and sheetmetal intake manifold. Frankenstein is working on a pair of Edelbrock SC1 cylinder heads, which will be ready by mid-season. Precision Turbo was tapped for a pair of 88mm turbochargers and the engine burns VP Racing Fuels M1 methanol, eliminating the need for an intercooler.
BoostedGT will be splitting driving chores with Morton and his famous 2003 SVT Cobra will still be a fixture on the street and strip, as well as on Discovery Channel’s Street Outlaw television series.
