This is not to mention, that for performance driving torque is not always a "more is better" issue. The real issue is traction, getting power to the road. More torque (power) down low just means more wheel-spin off the line.

Serious super cars like 458s have very little torque (in comparison to their HP numbers), at high RPMs, and yet still manage 0-60 in 3 seconds.

AND, since you can't buy a 5 year old 4.6 in the 2015 Mustang, you'll want to compare the driving experience on the two engines on your list.
