Newbie - no Mustang yet

Postby amauvis » Thu Aug 24, 2017 8:05 am

Hi there, just joined. Sort of introduced myself in more detail elsewhere (link below) but in short I'm a bit of a car hoarder and I need to create space for a Mustang before I buy one.

viewtopic.php?f=175&t=9561&p=82308#p82308

I rented a 2.3 Ecoboost in the US a couple of weeks back and was properly impressed by it. But, if I did, would I forever regret not getting a 5.0?

I don't and i've driven 3 ecoboosts (4 including the american one), and 4 V8s (Lund tunes, Wortec tuned, Dreamscience (shit) tuned, and stock).. I don't regret my eb one bit.. i miss the sound, but the EB feels a better road car.

That being said, i'd still love a V8, but, i have no regrets. :rock

Thanks :)

Not that I've ever bothered with such things, and I must be one of a select few running a standard map on a BMW 535d, but what is the reliable BHP expectations from an Ecoboost? As it is, its a little lump producing a fair chunk of power.

Reliable? Depends on fuel. If you run 99 (vpower or tesco 99 - or costco 99 (which is vpower)) you'll get about 280-290 wheels... Run standard fuel expect like 250-260 to the wheels.

Few mods you can have the ecoboost running 370 wheels quite easily (and for probably just under £1500).
