2015 2.3 turbo

Just wondering if there is any interest in these, or if anyone has noticed this. I have a 2012 3.7 m6 and would possible be interested in one if the price is not too high.

I'm excited to see what it can do, I love boosted cars. It's addicting.
I've owned an i6 twin turbo car and bumped the boost from stock 8psi to 17psi on 50/50 91 ethanol blend(I had 9 tunes all controlled thru my steering wheel one for ethanol)
And I saw my times on the track drop over a full second, would've saw more if I had drag radials.
It saw over 100hp at the crank and over 80 at the wheels. All with just a ****in tune! That's awesome!

The biggest gains for any turbo car:
Tune
Catless downpipes and catback
Meth injection
Upgraded intercooler
Air intake
Upgraded charge pipe
Lower thermostat
And the big one: upgrade the turbo.

I can't wait for this car, I can see some fast *** 4 bangers here soon. Can't wait.
And such a small engine in a big *** bay? Means easy easy easy to work on.

I loved the old SVOs and wished I could have afforded one back in the day (they stopped making them before I left high school). If I got another Mustang in the near future, it would most likely be the turbo 4. That better front/rear weight balance with the IRS would make this a total back road beast. I've had many boosted cars over the years so it took a little getting used to a naturally aspirated V8 with my current car.

Some hate on the mustang for having a inline 4. But I think it's awesome!! A 4 putting out 305 stock?! About 270 to the wheels? Simple upgrades will make this a killer car! I loved the SVO I'm sure people will like this one as well. But people will always hate on it cuz it's a 4.

I think it really great the new Mustang will be offering a turbo four. I am willing to bet the turbo four will be a really big seller for Ford. People who I work with had never considered buying a Mustang, but now several of them want to buy a Mustang with the turbo four. It looks like the time is right for Ford to introduce the turbo four in the Mustang. Should be interesting next year.

Just got the Feb. issue of Car and Driver, their supposed to be making Performance Pack 2.3 ecoboost that does 145mph, a base 2.3 ecoboost that does 121mph. There's a v6 at 121 mph and the v8 is at 155mph. The front and rear suspension have been reworked, the new v8 is claimed to be faster than the Boss 302. The PP sounds like enough to me! The 2.3 is going to be 305+ hp, but they haven't decided on the number yet! This is from interviews with Fords top people.
