IMO the new mustang GT should be a 450hp 302 with 4 wheel independent suspension. The Boss 302 @ 500hp.
You know what I just thought about... if ford can make these variable cam timing engines like the 3.7, and 5.0 they should make a 351(not the current shelby 5.4 bored) or 427 (428 or 429) with that same concept it would get good milage and be the worlds best engine :O

Size isn't everything anymore. You can make a modern v6 have more horsepower than v8s like the GTR. A 427 is very heavy even though it can handle crazy amounts of power, ford and GM are now trying to get their cars to handle better instead of just straight line speed hence the boss 302 and ZL1.

I think the theory of a 6.2 inna stang sounds good, but in reality i think it wouldn't work out well. For 1 gatta think of weight distribution n whatnot. I think a more balanced mustang is more attractive then something that is only good at straight line performance.

Camaros and corvettes have 6.2s and our beating the stang in handling right now, unfortunately...

Let's say if it were a reality, would it sell for a price of a ZO6? Close to the ZL1? Anything is possible. Idc what it is as long as one day, my pony devastates all GTR's.

True. I guess it would depend on if ford could make it work or not

Well ever heard the term no replacement for displacement. The gtr has twin turbos lol twin turbo a coyote and its well over 600 hp but the differences between na and fi is a lot o prefer na. The bigger the engine the more it can handle safely. Idk just my opinion yeha turbos best power adders but theres no replacement for a big v8.

Does make me wonder about the scalability of the Coyote. With GMs LSx, you have the 4.8, 5.3, 5.7, 6.0, 6.2 and 7.0 all in the same family with the same (external) dimensions. Where one fits so will the other. Is the same not true of the Coyote family of engines? I haven't seen anything saying there is...

Yeah fords v8s are probably going to start being based off the coyote due to its reliability, efficiency, and how advanced it is

yup.

As far as of right now the coyote is all alone. The new 5.8 and 6.2 are based off of the 5.4 platform

I'm new to the modern Stang world but I can say that I recently owned a 2010 Grand Cherokee SRT8 and a 2011 C6 Corvette. While the driving characteristics are apples to oranges in most cases, there is a reason I'm in a 5.0 now. I drove it and fell in love. It's just as fast as my Vette (according to the butt dyno) and tops out well above the dig monster SRT. That and I raced my buddies GT and he walked my C6. I'm out for revenge now.

I think that Ford would be hurting their sales, and their ego's when Car and Driver got ahold of a 6.2 'stang and it flopped on the slolam, plus the cornering would be horrible under acceleration. Straight line would be awesome, assuming that they could put enough suspension and weight on the rear of that thing. However, if they could put a mild TT setup on the coyote, and only use it as an option, such as the Laguna Seca Boss 302, it would be ideal. The ecoboost motors are beasts, however they are still forged induction and that brings in more problems, tighter seals=more wear and tear. The NA coyote will undoubtedly last longer and be more reliable than a TT setup, even on low boost, but it would give us an option. To tell the truth how many people keep cars more than 8-10 years anymore anyways. I dont, and dont really know anyone that does unless they buy a classic. Just my 2 cents, BTW guys love this forum.

Agreed with everything you said, a TT (or S/C) factory option would be ideal. To your point about how long cars are kept, speaking for myself, I keep em about a year - two if I really like it.

I still think they are going to have the TT 5.0 just like the new CJ has. It seems like that car is the test bed for the new drivertrain of the Shelby at least.

I read this and thought, why not take a mustang boss (I know that it was only a 2 year run) and instead of having dead space in the rear seat delete, move the engine to the middle! Bam!!

Good idea, however it would change EVERYTHING on the car from appearances to drivability! They are doing great with the Ford GT, but they have to cut soooo much weight in the rear to compensate for the engine. The price would be astronomical, and handling would be crazy for the first year ow two until they got it right. Oversteer one year, and under steer the next. Plus if your like me (6'4" & 335 lbs) you BARELY fit in the stang now and wouldn't stand a chance fitting into that one!!! But it would be nice to see it wreck the world of autos! Jeremy Clarkson himself bought the Ford GT cause it blew his skirt up, and we're talking about a man that drives the worlds most expensive and advanced supercars!
