I had a 59 volvo with a 1.4 ltr which my ex blew up. My neighbor and I rebuilt a 2.0 ltr 4 cylinder and installed it & that little car flew. Every time my ex drove it something got screwed up. Now I'm single and none of my cars blow up.LOL I just watched the GT and Ecoboost comparison over as "news" thread was surprised that GT only f3-4 seconds faster on the lap.
Even more interesting was the Miata that was not much slower in real world terms....and deemed most fun!
I had 2012 Volvo S60 I6 Turbo that's a majical motor like all I6.
cool little car I wish I still had it. I had strange cars in the 70's 1st a 61 temptest4 cyl 3 speed on the floor ( wife burned the clutch she came in the house and told me the car was stuck in a hole the parking brake was on.) the 4 cyl was 1/2 of a 389 v8 so it was a slant 4. The second was the volvoHaha .... '59 weighs nothing!
I don't think the Barra would fit under the Mustang's hood. It's probably too tall and long. But if they tipped it over enough and redesigned the oiling system as necessary and made the hood longer, maybe it would work. But then IMO Ford should switch to an NA V10 instead. That would be awesome. Much better than a 6 cylinder.
My colleague at work traded his 2021 GT500 for a 2022 Jaguar F-Type R and let me tell you the specs on that thing are pretty mean for an AWD beast! Sound notwithstanding.I rented a Jag F-Type with the 3.0 V6 while travelling last year.
Didn't sound as good as my Mustang but not bad, not bad at all.
