The Mustang will have a turbo in it, we just don't know what kind of turbo setup it will be.

Check this out: Bill Ford Jr. Confirms Turbocharged Mustang

There are a lot of theories out there but no facts to support them yet.

The rumors I have heard is it will get a turbo engine, but not the current ecoboost setup.

This is awesome, it could be anything from the v6 to the Shelby. All I know is that ford likes turbos and they make mucho power. Hell they should let one of each have the turbo, 400hp v6, 600hp 5.0 and 950hp Shelby.

Yup, I have mastered wishful thinking.

You need to test drive the new 5.0 in a regular cab-with 360 H.P. !

Re: Just throwin this out there

This is just a hypothesis.
Ford has spent a ton of money on the development of the new 5.0L engine. To develop a V6 with the same or more power with a lighter weight would be counter productive. From what I have gathered at other posts, Ford believes that they would loose customers if they didn't offer a V8 in the mustang. Remember that new engines for cars take years to develop and put into place. I wouldn't expect to see a V6 with the V8 5.0 output until the 5.0 has had a very long and lustrous life.
Something parallel to this would be Fords pulling of the performance package of the V6 until 5.0 sales picked up, or so I have read on other web sites.

If you want 5.0 power out of a 3.7 you will have to do it yourself and bite the warranty bullet. Looking forward to seeing this happen.

Re: Just throwin this out there

the turboed v6 doesnt have the same power level of the 5.0, its around 360 so it would be a good bit below the 412 the 5.0 had.
