Interesting, thanks.

Put me firmly in the "why-the-heck-not" camp. It could be a pretty cool car. I've always had a soft spot in my heart for the old SVOs. There's a guy in my neighborhood thats got a nice one.

well, its getting cold outside again...****in reached down to the 40s the other day.  almost can't wait for the snowy stuff............................almost i don't have a twitter account nor have i ever been to a twitter web page (update: i have), but if i ever did decide to take the plunge i will let you know by posting it in this awesome little box of text (update: not really)! i like tacos lol...though between crunchy tacos and soft tacos i cannot really say which one is better.  sometimes, the mess a crunchy taco leaves behind is a little annoying while the soft taco just doesn't have the same taste... cake is so much better than pie no, srsly.  **** pie. ****ing

Whatever model/engine it is, seems like there's a good chance the car will see huge gains with a tweak of the tune.

Lethal is working on a 2011 Ecoboost truck! They seem to be having trouble tuning it, but we will see.. Of course the engine would be different to allow high revs...

Could be awesome...

Given the fact that Ford said it will Ecco across all lines and the price of fuel I think it's a given.

I think its a good idea. I'd never get one but maybe it will calm some of the crazy climate change eco-nuts.

Seriously: I think the question we should be asking is: "Will the EB mustang be a part of the regular line up or a specialty model?"
If it's a specialty model then i can see something along the lines of an SVO/Turbo GT being the end result. If it was meant to be said specialty car, then the engineers can just scrounge up some GT500 suspension and add it to a less powerful car. I imagine it will be marketed towards the tuner crowd, especially if it's a non-V6 CAR. Or, failing that, towards the urbanite/hipster crowd as an eco-freindly mustang. "A Mustang for everyone" type marketing campaign backing it up. Otherwise it will likely replace the 3.7 with power around 350HP while the 5.0 gets direct injection and gets bumped to 422HP. The gt500 is already set to bend the ZL1 over it's knee like a problem child so that needs no tweaking.

Unfortunately I cant see an actual turbo car ever being branded SVO again. SVO was after all, the precursor to SVT and with the Shelby branded with, SVT Ford will want to avoid confusion. That said, I think Chevy screwed up in not naming the ZL1, Z28, but I'm sure they think they have a good reason as to why they didn't.

Sadly my dreams of seeing a new Mach 1 are almost dead. Didn't Foose say something about helping Ford to design the next Mach?

isnt the 2013 gt already at 420? i could see a 4 banger eco boost but i doubt they would make it more powerful then the sixxer, after all why would anyone buy a sixxer if there was a 4 banger that made more power and came turboed? i think its a great idea since the mustang was meant to have a model for everyone since the 60's, you could order it pretty much anyway you could think of with the smallest engine being the 170 ci sixxer and going upto a 429.

I think if the ecoboost shows up in the Mustang, they will do away with the V6.

i doubt it, i could see the ecoboost mustang being a lighter, more basic mustang with around 300 horses, and then bump up the v6 to 350+

I can't believe they are willing to retool and develop a 4cyl engine for the mustang when they have just come out with the 3.7, 5.0, and the latest gt500 one making like 600+hp... I think they would eco the v6 and make a specialty/intermediary between the GT and v6.

Maybe put in a fusion or econo car I4 that ford has lying around, but that still entails a good amount of work on ford's part. I'm excited though.
