"That's impressive HP from a four-banger, but it's the torque that snaps your head."

Anyone else remember the mid 80's fox chassis SVO tubo 4-cyl Mustang?
It had no low end torque though it got respectable et's when wound up. I imagine if they dual eco boost TC this it they might overcome some of that and 300hp is already 125hp over the SVO from the 80's.

It would still be called a one-lung'er Mustang in my midlife raised on V8 circles....gear-head snobbery never ends until the proof is on the street/track ;-)
