I WANT ECOBOOST! The Australians brag about it all the time. I love that Ford is finally figuring out efficiency and power. Though, my EPA estimates are way off from my real world MPG

Just put that torque monster Ecoboost engine from the F-150 in the mustang. How awesome would 420 Ft Lbs and 28-30 Mpg be.

Pretty cool by the sounds of it but there is no financial sense in Doug away with the new 3.7 as some have said. It's not cheap to develop an engine, get it in a car, and market it to the masses. They've gotta keep that sucker around just for the financial sense of it IMO. Like its been said already im almost positive that this Eco boost will fall right in between the v6/gt as an intermediate model. If its a four banger then I think it be the "base model" then they'll bump up the hp of the 3.7, and 5.0. My best guess would be if it wa that line up is 300hp ecoboost, 350hp v6 and 425hp gt.

Just take the ecoboost out of my F150, put a 6 speed manual behimd it with about a 3.3 axel and whatch the **** out. That mill makes a 6000# truck feel light as a feather, A nice tight light car and then your having fun.

No one wants that. It's not muscle if it doesnt have the horse power

The mustang never was and never will be a muscle car, it is a pony car. Carroll Shelby even called it a Secretary's car.

the ecoboost has already went over 800 horse on all stock internals. didnt last long, but it ran like that for like two weeks i read somewhere. it did finall throw a rod. but with a fordge kit, that will be a monster waiting to be unleashed.
Oh yea the turbo's were up graded to 75mm.
