It would be awesome if one could crank the boost up to around 450 rwhp on the stock engine. That rock!
I'll just throw this out there... I got a '14 Fusion Titanium just before Christmas so it has the 2.0L ecoboost and it's a fun little family hauler. I'm excited for the annual test track drive events we hold since I can almost guarantee they'll have the '15 Mustang out there for us to drive

I know one thing for sure the day gas goes over $6 a gallon is the day I garage my 5.0 and buy an Ecoboost mustang. Simple boltons and 3:73 gears and that little 4 will be as fast as my 5.0 and even with the 3:73 gears still get over 30mpg easy.

I am looking forward to the 4 cylinder but one has to question what the exhaust tone is going to be like

Check YouTube/Instagram, there's 'spy videos' of the turbo 4cyl driving and you can hear the turbo

They could depending on turbo production availability and pricing. Then in the following years they can alway place a different turbo in as it becomes available or feasible.

Well if the OEM turbo is really maxed out then I don't know how reliable it will be. Turbo failure if its spinning as fast as it can at every mash of the pedal?

That's why you buy the 5.0.

Talking

I think the Ford engineers were expecting big jumps in horsepower in the future for the 2.3 liter Ecoboost four. Why else would they put a forged steel crankshaft and forged steel connecting rods in a sub 400 horsepower engine ?

I copied and pasted this from the Q&A with Prakash Patel from Ford forum. According to his answer the rods are not mentioned as forged.

The 2.3L EcoBoost will have forged steel crankshaft with premium bearing materials.

With forged internals, maybe there will be an SVO model--basically a premium version of the standard eco-boost....hmmm?

Damnit I want real info on the Mach or Cobra!

Forged internals are great and all but my next Stang is a special edition weekend car.
