The hype of the new 2.3L EcoBoost Ford Mustang hit the internet in 2014 and continued to go viral as the 2015 Mustang became available, marking the reign of the new sixth generation models. The 3.2L EcoBoost is not only turbocharged; it features a direct injection fuel system, producing 310 horsepower with 320 lb-ft of torque. Though it is no match to the Mustang GT, the 2.3L 4-cylinder model is considered one of the best non-V8 options available.
While living in a time period where consumers are hyperaware of fuel efficiency and gas prices, the 2.3L EcoBoost Mustang sparked the interest of many who were looking for a more economical American muscle car. Consumers who were looking to stay away from the high dollar price tag of the Mustang GT could have easily purchased the 3.7L V6 option, but why settle with less horsepower, less torque and worse fuel economy when one could purchase the 2.3L EcoBoost option.
As a Mustang GT owner or even those who own the V6 model, endless upgrades are available for better performance, more power, and better fuel economy. Yet, those who spent the extra money to upgrade from the V6 model to the 2.3L EcoBoost option are probably wondering why upgrades would even be necessary? It can be assumed that features such as better fuel efficiency and the slight increase in added horsepower compared to the V6 model are key features that help sell the EcoBoost over other models. Then why would it be of interest to make upgrades to a vehicle that already has a great advantage over its competition? There are however aftermarket upgrades that could be of interest to these EcoBoost owners. Performance modifications like Spectre Performance air intake systems are designed to not only help boost performance, but also help protect an engine from harmful debris.
