Turbo-Powered Ford F-150 Is REALLY Turbo Powered

July 1, 2009

Remember that episode of Family Guy where Peter thought it'd be fun to fill up his truck with jet fuel and fly around town? Well, he's been one-upped: Michigan's Chris Lentz took a 728-pound jet engine from pre-war Czechoslovakia and a 20-gallon kerosene tank, and bolted both of them to the back of his 2005 Ford F-150. Sadly, the truck can't actually fly, but it makes a very respectable 0-60 mph in 8.5 seconds. And as you'll see from the clip above, it sounds just as badass as it looks.
