Yes, poo does happen from time to time. Sometimes you're the poo-er, sometimes the poo-ee. Life is like that.

Political correctness is a doctrine, fostered by a delusional, illogical liberal minority, and widely promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.

There's always the 725 hp Shelby Super Snake setup. I probably only costs a few grand in parts. The elephant in the room Ford has is fuel economy, for every 1 MPG that the car looses it adds $500-$700 to the cost of the car for no good reason.
I don't see the business logic of putting the ecoboost in a Mustang. Fords that currently have the ecoboost are all $35k+. I'm willing to bet the V6 with all turbo hardware weighs as much or more than a V8 and the gas mileage probably isn't much better and has to run 91+ octane. I'd expect the price of base Mustangs to go up quite a bit with a turbo setup and the need to run 91 octane would also make it a poor choice for a base car.
Do I want a turbo V6? Oh hell yeah. Seems like a poor business decision though.
