I was beside the semi and it was a three lane highway, the car had the power to get behind the semi then completely around it and in front of HIM, before he could accelerate past the semi.

insane power, the only real drawback is the engine uses direct injection so there is a limit to tuning because the high pressure pump is mechanical and ecu tuning has a hard upper limit unless you upgrade that pump, which is crazy money (as much as another donor motor). you cant add upstream injectors like most turbos either, because the engine runs crazy high compression and would just detonate spectacularly.

I think it might be my perfect engine though, I have wanted an ecoboost mustang for years, it will keep up with a v8 mustang in the corners because of the better balance
Yeah my buddy has a 2017 Mustang with an ego boost and I've ridden in it a couple times. He has quite a bit of work done to it. The other day he just picked up a different turbo for it and it's insane the power it makes
