    Judging by the only dyno chart I've seen which is from Motor Trend (not the most credible source for figures, I know), the 2.3 Ecoboost seems to run out of steam at high rpm at a pretty noticeable rate. However, judging by my experience with a 2.3L engine with a medium/small twin scroll turbo, I'm guessing that it could be mitigated effectively with intake/exhaust mods and a reflash. Hopefully, exhaust mods for the 2.3L Ecoboost will be cheaper than on the GT, since it's only got one bank of cylinders and turbo cars don't need mufflers.

    Ecoboost Mustang:

    MS3 with off the shelf Cobb AP 93 octane map, catted turboback exhaust, intake/turbo inlet, but the same old K04 turbo:

    Apparently the EcoBoost is using an artifical sound generator out of the stereo. Also, if you replace the headunit with an aftermarket stereo, you lose the sound generator.

    Interesting... Maybe F-1 cars should also consider sound generators for their current eco boost engines...

    Need pics and videos. Burnout mode also needs to be tested on video.

    Thank you for your co-operation.
