Btw... not that im trying to justify the ecoboost but its pushing 365HP and 420 Torque. So its go slightly less HP then a sport but more Torque... plus they have the luxury of a tuner option where as we with 2011+ do not. With the same gearing they also get about 700 more lbs of trailer towing then us... ijs its not that bad of a motor... i just love how my sport ext and for sure the interior compare to any other make.
no not seeing them putting a V6 in the shelby. He hasn't lost it that far I hope.

Like the old saying goes, "there's no replacement for displacement."

I don't care what the numbers are, I have no interest in a V6 with a power adder. A naturally aspirated V8 will be much better regardless than a forced induction V6. Not ot mention the detonation that is prone in power adders.

I came out of cars a few years back, learned a long time ago that if you're gonna get a car you build it around the motor. You don't try to work on the motor later to squeeze more power than it was meant ot have out of it.
