General consensus would you you would be losing a lot of power but gaining better handling and better interior. Of course the looks are subjective.

I don't know about moving from a GT to the EB. I think it would bother me that the FOCUS RS has the same engine and 350 HP.

Not even close to the same engine, theres quite a bit different between the two. That being said, nothing the FRPP catalog cant fix, and you're still talking a 10k price difference base model to base model. Hard to say which of the two i'd rather have though. That RS is going to be a beast, just doubt we'll want to pay for one haha.

I am aware of some of the differences Ford has made to get to 350 HP --- but they ARE both 2.3L EcoBoost engines with the same block, bore and stroke.

No way! Little turbo engines can be fun to drive, but in comparison I would MUCH rather have the 14 GT. Everyone has their own opinion, but I'll take a solid V8 over a turbo 4 banger any day of the week. The sound alone is enough to sway me. Looks wise I prefer the 14GT, sound, appearance is a toss up, but I still prefer the GT...Handling might be the only thing I prefer on newer models. There is no comparison, don't do it period. As for Rap calling the coyote a bland car...Again, what is he driving now? I have had plenty of cars throughout my life from my very first 1972 Plymoth Duster 340, multiple Camaro's, to my current 14 CTS-V sport twin turbo and 14 RS3. Bland would never be a word I would use to describe a GT. There are some shortcomings without a doubt, but the coyote motor alone is far from bland if you ask me. It brings a smile to my face every time I start it

I think Raptinator is building a Vortech 5.3L with a bigass shot of the sauce in a 2 door shortbed pickup and had a 900hp built Coyote.


I personally don't think they are bland either but to each their own. Ford did **** the bed with the S550 if we are talking about performance.

We all know whatever Rap actually drives that the engine will be Fu**ing bad ***, but to call the coyote bland....I just shake my head at that. Shortcomings are there obviously, but it actually reminds me of some old school muscle cars that I have had. I know some people might say a 2014 car should never remind you of an old car you had from decades ago, but there are certain things that I enjoy in driving my car. I don't need all the technology of a car that almost drives for me.... At times my DD CTS-Vsport annoys me with technology.

Sounds like you need to be in older cars, not new ones.

Great Recon; A car guy is a car guy period. However, what you said definitely holds some truth. As for new cars, I certainly don't complain about the suspension and brake upgrades. As for prices going through the roof and depreciation of new cars, who does not complain? I do prefer old muscle cars though, no doubt. I mean they hold value, most gain and it is not every day you see them. I guess it might be what you grow up around, when men were men.

I'm curious about what makes it "bland"... Bland is defined as "lacking strong features or characteristics and therefore uninteresting". A 2016 GT (Coyote) looks very similar to a 2016 Ecoboost. By that token, if the Coyote is bland then so is the Ecoboost.

I think Rap was referring to the 2015+ and I agree. Looks too much like the rest of the Ford Fleet. The Camaro looks unique in the lineup as does the Challenger of the respective brands. And so did the S197.

I did it!

I just replaced my 14 GT with a 16 EcoBoost premium. No comparison. The 550 does everything better. Except accelerate. The Interior is far nicer, has a built in nether region cooling/heating system, seats are far more supportive and comfortable, with a nice bump in leather quality. Handling is great right out of the box. I usually buy a Roush suspension system on all my new Mustangs. Not on this car. It's got so many standard upgrades I wouldn't know where to start naming them.
If I want a mid 12 second car again it's easily attainable with the ecoboost. My car was just going out of warrantee so I decided it was time for a 16. No buyers remorse. I am quite happy with this car. Anybody looking for Roush suspension system for a 14 GT?

It's going to need a while bunch of stuff. I mean, a GT auto can go 12.8/12.9 if you're a pro , otherwise it's up to mid 13's. It sounds like you like your car , so just enjoy it because you're gonna waste so much money. What are you going to do when the warranty runs out of this car? Nobody is going to want to pay more for any of the mods you make. Anyways enjoy your new car!

You mean to tell me a guy with an automatic 5.0 can't run 12.9 1/4 miles unless their a pro? Mid 13's on 1/4 mile with a 5.0? Heck, guys with 3.7 bolt on are easily running low to mid 13's and we are no where near the 5.0's rwhp and rwtq.

Yeah 11-14 put down faster 1/4 miles because of the solid rear axle. So yeah, you'd be able to go that fast. If you look up some test times from actual professional car drivers , you'll note that 1/4 times seem to be a around 12.8/13 for the new mustang GT. Unless you don't care to research things before talking about them

I drove my brothers '16 5.0 Auto 12.77 right out the box. And with out slicks. If you can't get into the 12's with a 5.0 something is wrong.

I guess my point being if the 5.0's are running low to mid 13 second mile 1/4 mile times, that's disappointing and sucks. My little 3.7 with bolt on's are running those times with 60 less HP and 80 less torque. That was my point, which you missed. That was my way of saying that's a freaking joke of a 1/4 mile time for the 5.0 mid 13's.

these times have nothing to do with solid rear axles

As if the rear end doesn't play a big part in why the last gen was quicker in a straight line. Whats your analysis ? A stronger stiffer rear end puts power down more effectively . Simple stuff

I've read that a SRA does have some benefits opposed the the IRS in a straight line run.
But I would think the weight increase of the S550s would play a larger role in any slower then normal 1/4 mile times to the equivalent 13/14 models.
On a more fun note if the new S550s V8s are running low to mid 13s I'm glad I didn't down grade to a new 5.0 😜

Where do you see low to mid 13s?

The most I've seen is a .2 sec slower, usually it's just a tenth. Straight off Motor Trend. Just wondering who said it.

It was mentioned by Kona, but we r just having some fun.
If I bought a 15/16 5.0 and was running low to mid 13s it would be going back!
My car with simple bolt ons and a tune will run mid to high 13s, maybe a low 14, and it was over 10k cheaper then a 5oh.

Tbh I was really put off last night when I went to my dealer and we briefly threw around some numbers and a 16 gt with the pp was going to run 40k plus around 6k in taxes and depending on the term another 3 or 4k in interest.
So around 50k for a 5oh is not happening with a family to support.
Probably going to go pro charger next summer, and besides I love my 3.7!
