What's yall's opinion on if Ford converted the 6.2L SOHC Raptor V8 into a high revving mustang motor??

IF it happened it would be a Shelby only thing, I don't know that there's enough room to fit the 6.2 in the mustang, especially not the new ones, they're down sizing the car and the 5.8 barely fits

I think they should stick with lower displacement, it looks a hell of a lot better when a 5.0 makes as much horsepower as a much higher displacement 6.2L LS engine.

Exactly...so think of what a 6.2 could do?!

I would love it! Keep with the true muscle car persona! Big motor, bad steering and little brakes! Haha, I think it would be great though. Then have Hennessy twin turbo it! 800+ hp. It would be awesome!

Orrrrr, have about a 480HP natural motor in a car with IRS, huge brakes, and the best American steering...aka, the 2015 mustang!

Haha, yeah I guess that would be better. I still like the idea of a TT mustang though, or twin super.

I think something that gives the Mustangs it's character is its LRA, maybe it's just me but I think they should stick with it for a while instead of IRS.

49 years isn't long enough? The Mustang is one of the last holdouts using a stick out back. Actually, off the top of my head, I can't think of a passenger car platform still using one except the Mustang.

Is this something Ford has talked about somewhere in a article or is this something you just want to get opinions on?
Nah I've just seen it on other forums

Twin turbo the beast, irs, big brakes all around and keep it looking old school and you would have a winner for sure. Holy crap it would be hard to create traction though. I bet it would sound amazing though.
