2015 Mustang Engine Bay Shots Show Smaller dimensions

Here, you go. The 5.0 looks really crammed in the new bay. Though it wears the same outer skin, you can see the new body metal under it. Also, more shots of the IRS.

Mustang 66

IRS spotted again

I know it’s a prototype but you can see new gauges and I hope they are real because I hate the fat stubby needles that the current mustang has

Re: 2015 Mustang Engine Bay Shots Show Smaller dimensions

I am realy excited about the new mustang. I can see they are still working with the hose layout, but I think the packaging is done realy well. The 5.4 will be taller, I don't think it will be wider. Therefore, there will be room. I think. I have always thought the stang should be smaller. I used to have a 75 ghia. Sizewise and driveability, it was sweet. I think the 2015 will be a hit. If there is still an America here.

The 5.0L is such a great engine. With the Ecoboost treatment (twin turbos, direct injection, etc.), could it put out as much power as the current supercharged 5.8L?

Buy American!
Buy Ford!
So say we all...

It'll kill the 5.8.

The "Miami" - A blown factory Coyote in Aus that is found in the current FPVs - is making about 550hp with very small boost and no intercooler. With similar add-ons to the 5.8 it would exceed the 5.8's power. With next gen Ecoboost tech it'll be a matter of how much the driveline can cope with, and what is deemed to be safe in a road car. It may just be tuned for economy and a lazy 700hp.

Will 5.0 l v8 with twin turbo fit in engine bay? You have to add turbos, piping, intercooler etc.

I could easily be wrong but somehow don't think the owners would be too put out by a hood with a bulge

Automotive.com has a comparo pic (direct Link) showing what might be new structure for a very tapered nose

It will be long years before this will be released but I am sure Ford lovers are already craving for this new mustang.
