Default 5.0 2000hp

i was looking through a mustang trader and there was a '80 somthing mustang with a 5.0 that claimed to have 2000hp. do you think this was a misprint or could you really get that much power out of this engine? i know it's really modable but this is rediculous.

it probably had 5.0 badges, but was really a 10.0 liter or something insane like that

I don't think it was a typo, no one cares if it makes 200hp, that would help not sell it. I never heard a stang go much more then 1000, I think tanks push around 2000, but no car.

Pro mod cars put out 2600hp-3000 as do funny cars. Top fuel cars pull out almost 6000+hp out of a v8. So I guess it could be possible but it would be far from streetable.
