Yes, because I could afford it. If not, I would have had no issue getting an Ecoboost with performance pack. I was originally intending to do so but found myself getting a much better deal on trade than I expected at a dealer that had a Bullitt for under MSRP.

I also don't look down on people that still rock a 3.8L v6. V8 driver or not I'm not an elitist asshole. There is NO reason to be ashamed of buying a car that fits your budget.
Today's hp wars make you think that cars back then were super underpowered. I remember later 2000s a car with mid-200s hp was impressive.
I've been watching old Top Gear and it's funny watch them swoon over "supercar" with 450bhp, when we daily drive our Bullitts at 480hp. I know there's a difference in bhp and hp, but still, hp is being pushed further and further!

Improved nannies help a lot with that too.

What's wrong with an EcoBoost? It's more HP and TQ, and responds better to mods than any NA pre-5.0 v8.

In 2003 310hp and 330TQ was a "man's car" suddenly now that a 4 banger is able to make that much it's for pussies?
It's not a bad motor but the exhaust note is awful.

Back when a car had 200 HP, they didn't weigh 3800-4000 lbs either.
I still think they should have put the 3.5L eco boost from the F150 into the mustang - that's the way that they should have released the EB mustang in my opinion. That would have been the hottest modded car on the street - easy to tune another 150+HP with a slightly bigger turbo and some fuel - might have killed the V8 though.

Yeah that would be the issue. The 3.0TT EB is already at 400HP, it would NOT be a lot more to toss a good tune, and some breathing mods to be over the GT'460 and Bullitt/Mach1 480, likely with better TQ to go with it. Just a tune and FMIC they are rolling deep 12's, weight more than a Mustang, and have that crap auto.
