No 4cyl for me
I'm just not impressed. yes it sounds good but 4cyl turbo no thanks. Happy with my six and yes if I wanted I could buy a 2014 or 2015 GT cash. I would love to buy GT but I cant talk myself into it even though they are great.
More than happy with my v6. yes the 4cyl will be a bit faster than mine but it requires 93 octane.
I'm 41 and I remember all too well the 4cyl Turbo craze of the mid 80s to early 90s, eagle talons, Dodge Chargers, Dodge Daytonas, Chrysler conquests, Ford probe 4cyl turbo, etc etc etc.
they stopped making them because they would break.
Turbo lag, heat heat heat. turbos generate soooo much heat and please change your oil often. Not to mention the exhaust system must be "just right" to have everything work properly. Plus there are a lot of videos going around from techs telling for issued with the ecoboost turbos. valve damage etc. there is a few on youtube from a ford tech.
If you buy a 4cyl Ecoboost Mustang and plan to make mods please know what you are doing.
I'm happy with the simple v6 that delivers almost as much power on 87 octane and yeah I throw in 93 or 94 octane once in a while if i chose.
I'm not bashing but I'm waiting til we get the horror stories of modded ecoboosts that went wrong.
Good luck to all.
i know the ecoboosts will be great just not for me, no desire.
