dont worry about the slight very very slight in crease in CI for 2004... it doesnt even matter really. Its was just Ford using some left over parts to move crap out~ no big deal at all.

the v6 mustang was never meant to have much power, it was just an affordable option for someone who wanted a nice looking car without spending v8 money
