Even 1 year....wouldn't be enough to start cheaper mass production. Maybe a few years from now there will be more of a market starting to open OR, the other way around, the new stuff coming out in 2015 takes the feet out from under the 3.7 and companies focus what little energy they expended on parts for the 3.7 and concentrate on the Ecoboost, later NA engines.
Surprises me they haven't developed the software for grafting an ecoboost crate engine into the Mustang.

More to it than that, I'm sure. Just speaking in a very broad general term here.

Why hasn't the market gone in that direction? You can put the ecoboost 3.5 in classic car projects now.
