Or at the very least, the 3.5L V6. It doesn't make financial sense, to pursue 4 digits with the 3.7L when better platforms are readily available even if you choose 6 holes over 8. I appreciate everything that Solo has accomplished, but I think the results of these attempts to stretch the envelope to the max only serve to magnify the block's weaknesses.

The 3.5 is used in both a rear drive and front drive configuration and I believe that the installation of this block in a Mustang would be a straight forward proposition.

If we want to throw money at R&D, I wonder how difficult it would be to put together an all wheel drive, 450HP/430TQ EcoBoost V6 Mustang.
