Default If they put a 4 banger in it there will be trouble

I'm thinking engine fires, lots of recalls. They try to squeeze too much out of something too small. Sure it works in Formula 1 and Indy but not so much with street cars mass produced. No substitute for cubes.

Your not real familiar with wrx, evo, srt4, ect......... are you. They won't have any mechanical issues, it's not like they never put a 4 cyl in a mustang before anyways, and I'm seeing a chance to market a new SVO as well.

No substitute for cubes if your trying to build a top fuel dragster? For your typical commuter car trying to meet carb standards a 4 banger is plenty. I made 400WHp and 400Tq. out of the last 4 banger I owned. It's not the 60s anymore. That no replacement for displacement doesn't really apply anymore.

Yep. With that being said I'll take my Mustang with a 5.0.

I should have quoted the OP, my bad. Its one thing to make a statement and then back it up but as it is now I don't see anything supporting the OP.

Ford recalls its four bangers....overheating...engine fires...

http://www.edmunds.com/car-news/2013...fire-risk.html

This isn't yesterday's news either. It's current. Can't testify to wrx, evo, srt4 but I can be sure that none of those engines will be going in the new Mustang. Unless someone decides to toss the Ford engine and put one in. Just my opinion. Worthwhile or worthless, I really want Ford to prove me wrong.

They are talking about a specific engine in that article, the 1.6, and it's not like they are all going up in flames. They determined some sort of risk, so they are just being pro-active. The 4-banger in the Mustang will be a 2.3 or larger I think.

Quote:
Ford noted that 2013 Ford Escapes with the 2.0-liter and 2.5-liter engines are not part of the recall. Neither are 2013 Ford Fusions equipped with the 2.5-liter and hybrid engines. Owners can contact Ford at 1-866-436-7332.

Well first off I doubt they will put the smallest 4 cyl they run at the moment in the mustang, which is what's having problems, the article also states that the bigger 4 cyls are running fine.

The 1.6 will also not be going in the new Mustang. The bigger turbo 4 in the Focus ST seems to be doing just fine, and I think that will be very similar to the turbo 4 that will be in the Mustang.

There will be recalls regardless because it is a brand new model but I doubt it will be the engine catching fire because of trying to squeeze too much out of something too small.
