I wondering in which factory they gone build the European Ecoboosts?
Or will they all be shipped?

I think it would be cool if they build them all in America but due to the supply demands they likely have to add a second plant somewhere in europe, not sure where though. They just need something in the eastern part of the world

Hey Fev, What I do know is that the 2.3 EcoBoost will be manufactured in Valencia.

he basic 2.3 EcoBoost will power other Fords, including the forthcoming, Escape-based Lincoln MKC crossover. The engine will be built in Valencia, Spain. For the turbocharged Mustang, Ford quotes a preliminary 305 hp, or 132.6 hp per liter, with 300 lb-ft of torque.
From the wording it seems like the 2.3 will be built in Valencia, shipped to Flat Rock, Michigan and then shipped back with the rest of the car...

Ford expects just 10 percent of production from the Mustang plant in Flat Rock, Mich., to find its way overseas.

We have a huge very nice Ford factory in Belgium !! Convinced employees would love to build it instead of getting fired these days and see the productions of different models move to Spain !

well it comes down to factory tooling, the investment to retool those factories to make mustangs instead of Mondeos probably well outweight the $750 million severance to close the shop.

It doesn't seem like the most cost efficient method to build the engines in one place, send them to another, and then send the completed car back to the first place. Surely they have a better system that that.

Lights should be RED on a black mustang. On my Ingot I think I'll survive with the White ones but still checking out solutions to swap to RED (including turn signals)..


Don't like the orange side reflectors neither...
Are these clipped or glued on ? Anyone knows of a possible supplier for red ones ?

On my 1995 Mustang they were clipped, I'm pretty sure that your dealer can order red ones from Ford. I had no issues with the government's yearly control concerning those red side markers, but yeah that was way back in 2000 and the following years.
