My Volvo is quite a fast car but the 5.0 makes it feel like a snail. Nothing substitutes the V8 rumble as part of the Mustang owning experience.

And being totally honest.. the "Eco-boost" engine has nothing "eco" about it. My guess is that in real world driving conditions the eco-boost Mustang is going to have worse mpgs than the 3.7 V6.

I agree. Won't know til we drive one, but I'm not expecting a loaves and fishes miracle. The specs are very close to the current V6. Having driven both current engines regularly, I believe there will still be no comparison. Like the V6, love the V8. Both are fun, but one is a blast.

The EB is only rated 2 MPG Hwy higher than the 30 Hwy on the current V6. That means there's still a lot of car to pull around here.

Well while we're just guessing on stuff, I personally would like to see what a EcoBoost version of the old 300ci inline six would be like.
Could be a Beemer killer from hell, BMW still uses turbocharged inline six's to good effect.

Edit, just saw you said at certain RPM it may make more which may be true. Still haven't seen a real world dyno graph.

Why would Ford be liable for warranty if you modded their vehicle? Unless they specifically state otherwise, your warranty is null and void the second you change anything with other than OE (or OE quality) parts. The computers in these cars will probably upload your data without you even knowing about it too.

Read alot of bad info here, the biggest reason for the EcoBoost 4 in the Mustang is mostly for the European market. They will continue the horsepower wars as they are making too much money doing it.

BMW/Mercedes/Ferrari/Lamborghini and the rest of the European high performance market spend more on R&D on their engines than the NA makers spend on total development. The NA manufacturers have been playing catch up and still have a ways to go. Any good small displacement currently available was R&D's in Europe, not here.

1988 Mustang LX coupe will miss you greatly
