550HP Ecoboost Mustang - 2 Weeks Ago

I wonder how long this car will hold together before something breaks.
It's cheap relatively speaking at $33,000, but has no factory warranty.

I've been trying to resist buying an EcoBoost since they came out. That doesn't make it any easier, lol. Like you, I wonder how long it would hold together. The 2.3 is fairly stout...time will tell.


no man with a good car needs to be justified...

550hp is nothing for an ecoboost. The motor can handle 1200hp at 60psi. At 25psi it is at 600rwhp, and at 30psi it is at 700rwhp.

Make sure you don't go around talking about how long it will last,because that will make people nervous. We had the same problem with the 4.0 and had to make this site, cause all the GT fan boys were picking on us saying that the 4.0 was a boat anchor. Just be carefull or I'll get pissed off at you. I ain't joking around! The motor was built from the ground up to handle boost and HP and TQ.
