Stupid. Pay a premium for a four cylinder that has the same fuel mileage and power as the standard six in the real world. The ecoboost is nothing more than a marketing gimmick.

dang, with some aftermarket wastegates or a boost controller, that car will easily make over 400wtq...

and now we have aftermarket turbo companies waiting to get their hands on the first 2.3L Mustang so they can start fabbing up bigger turbos, intercoolers and downpipes.....

freaking Ford running the table......

Ford will start selling the 4cyl mustangs in uk now for the first time. But not the v6 or the v8 ones.
