Yes, I can hear it already (since there is no shortage of people complaining about this); “A Mustang should never have a 4 cylinder! It’s an insult to the legendary Mustang name! Why are we catering to the rest of the world, this is Murican muscle!” And so on and so forth.

Once all that is out of the way, you have the Ecoboost Mustang, a turbocharged four cylinder that’s actually a pretty fun car to drive. On top of that, however, is the ability to mod the Ecoboost. I have a bunch of friends who have modded their Ecoboosts to the point where my V8 Mustang looks slow next to theirs.
Take, for example, this guy’s Ecoboost:
This thing packs a massive turbo that can output 35 psi of boost, and along with a host of other engine mods, this thing’s performance speaks for itself on track. Racing in the stick shift class, this Ecoboost originally put down a 11.30, a time that it later demolished with a 10.96 at 129 MPH.
The two runs shown include a victory over a C7 Corvette with the 11.30 time, and a loss to a turbo M3, but with a 10.96 time. Win or lose, a 10 second Ecoboost Mustang is nothing to scoff at!
