Got to mess around with the new 2.3l Ecoboost for the new Mustang

I'm pretty excited for this Mustang and this motor.

Old guys complaining to Tom that nobody wants a 4 cylinder Mustang







Pretty flimsy rods though






He also said the Mustang on the podium had the Ecoboost in it





The motor will be built in Cleveland so that's great, I do wish they didn't skimp on the intake manifold like they did and used a little stronger rods but oh well. Still am excited

I know the old school mustang guys aren't having this, they will hate it, any mustang with a 4 cylinder to them is a mustang from the bottom of a cereal box.

I believe the other ecoboost engines are running 12-16 psi stock... Its going to be a little rough trying to mod this motor for MOAR, because the twin inlets for the exhaust manifold leading into the turbo has been cast into the head, which likely means you can't put headers or custom manifold on the 2.3T.
