    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.

    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

    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?

    the gen2 EcoBoosts are supposed to make upto 140hp per liter

    tho
    CGI rumors (Compacted Graphite Iron) may mean even more power

    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
