Would be cool to see. Just hope the next mustang will be a smaller. When I look at my 12 next to a fox or a new edge it's just so big. Couldn't see a 4cylinder in such a big car.

Re: Return of the SVO...

Why not it's the same as the 300hp v6 that's in yours except it will probably spank the 3Vs and the new 3.7 due to the huge weight loss.

Supposed to be smaller and lighter (I've read they are shooting for less than 3200 lbs for the GT from somewhere)

Oh I'm not saying it wouldn't. I just picture 4cyl(performance wise) in smaller cars. Idk maybe I'm just weird. :/

A ecoboost could be made wicked. Look what livernoise motorsports has done with the SHO's ecoboost.
Not to mention a weight of 3200lbs would be great.

Did you see the video of the SHO (tuned) spanking the SRT8 jeep? Now that's impressive.

IMO if Ford brings back the 4cyl Mustang it will only give Camaros and other rivals the chance to mock us... It was great at the time but since the Muscle Car rivalry is so big right now it probably isn't such a great idea.

On the contrarie i think it just opens anouther ave of compatition between the manufactures plus how funny to see a turbo 4 stomp on a big v8 awsome but i how ever am for ever lost in the sweet saranade of the good old push rod v8 so no i dont think ill bye one (unless it sounds like a boxer 4 thats anouther story)

This sounds great to me.

Then, in 15 years or so, people will be buying 'em cheap to swap 5.0's in 'em If this happens, and I somehow could afford it, I could see myself buying one.

No way I'm getting rid of my ugly, old, slow, environmental nightmare of a pushrod V8 though..

Mock heh...a 300hp+ 4cyl turbo is nothing to mock. Do you see people mocking evo's or sti owners? They are quick cars. 4cyl turbo with 300hp...I'm sold! 30-35mpg hwy /win.

Sure the sound ok I'll give you that. Other than that though it's a win for power and economy.

I've heard that they are mule testing the engine in the rs but the reason we don't get it here is they feel it wont sell in enough volume... which makes no sense because they sell like 50 a year in europe...

Interesting on all accounts. I wish I still worked at the glass house it was easy to find out what mules were running around when I was still there. Just look in the parking lot at which car had all the **** in it "laptops, gauges, monitoring equipment and the dead giveaway was the exhaust tips with the o2 sensors on the tips. I miss my old job but I'm glad I live in Cali now hehe.

IMO if Ford makes 4cyl mustangs and people mod them out then people will start calling us ricers... I'm all for it but I just don't believe in a 4cyl Muscle Car.

No one ever made fun of svo owners. I think the old 5.0 got more bad wrap. You can be rice even if you have 8cyl depending on what external mods you have. Either way once a 4cyl turbo is available in a mustang I'll be reliving the 1980's



That is 1980's technology at its best.

I own a 87 gt and I owned 92 hatch which I swaped the stock 4 for the turbo 4 mill. The turbo four was the funner out of the two even with a stock t bird turbo mill in it. It sounded good less problems than my 5.0 and I could have pushed it to 400 hp with a bigger turbo and suporting mods. Sold it to get a truck got 4500 for the turbo four. I would love to see it as an option but it wouldn't have to be a ricer just like the current v6

True, If they make the Mustang smaller like they did for the fox's then it would be cool to do a 4cyl again, but i just don't think it would be right if they keep the size of the current one... I couldn't imagine a small 4cyl (even if it does pack 300+ HP) in a big car like a Mustang (Unless they go smaller).

300hp+ even in the current mustang is a good combo. If you think about it the current 6 is putting out 305hp I'd be happy with that and 35mpg highway!

Most speculation says that the new mustang will drop a few hundred pounds which would be awesome. Hell even a 3400lb car (like the new edge cars) would be awesome.

I'm sorry this is a mustang it's not meant to be light and have a 4 banger leave that to Asian and euro we are American muscle and I'd hate to see four bangers again oh god I can see it now fart cans and everything at least a big v6 sounds better and is a better platform for modding if I wanted light and four banger turbo id get a sti or a v dub and chip it not a muscle car with a four banger I say leave the v6 and turbo that and ull see 350-400 hp with that no replacement for displacement :p

I agree... but its going to happen. And if it has to happen then I want them to do it right. And light doesn't necessarily mean small. Just lighter weight materials. An aluminum frame and efficient design could yeild a nice lightweight design. The camaro is going to the caddy ats platform and will drop to 3550-3700 lbs and dodges challenger is being replaced by a barracuda which should also be on a diet. I'm ok with a lighter weight car. And the v8 isn't going anywhere. I wouldn't worry.

Now if they also make the v8 lighter too >_> hhhhmmmmm use the base model as a test subject to get better performance from the v8

Up until 95/96 they made standard LX's and 94-96 GTS's. Cheap seats no power option(no extra wires) mid and late 80's ones had vinyl seats and radio deletes factory. Way lighter and several 1/10's faster in the 1/4.. My first stang was a 95 GTS.

For the era the push rod 5.0's were beast. To be clear SVO and SVT are/were the same thing. I highly doubt they will digress and change the name of the division back to SVO. I'd be surprised if this new car were known as an SVO as well. Think the comparison or reference is being made because of the engine.
