The performance is really quite impressive. I'm curious on the fuel economy figures on those two vehicles though.

The regular Flex is pretty low considering the size, so I don't imagine it is good.

I think we're going to see the return of the factory turbo in a big way with the new fuel economy standards. There have been rumors of a twin turbo e85 flex fuel V6 from Ford. Is this that engine? I want one in my Mustang!

I hope those little engines can take some abuse. Just imagine how you could tune the cars like a diesel engine. Add more fuel, more boost and you could have a rocket car!! How ever much air and fuel you can inject and stuff into the engine. Awsome!!
Is anyone already working on a race version?

Water meth kit to keep the AIT down or a dash of nitrous with some strokes of the keyboard retard the timing and add fuel. Could we see a 450 - 550 hp 3.5 with just some nitrous?

i would love to see a swap into a foxbody mustang, my only problem with these is every car ford has weighs like 4000 lbs or more, think of what 355 lb. ft. and 360 hp could do in a 3000 lb car. return of the SVO mustang maybe? well SVT this time around i suppose. this engine is also coming out in the new taurus SHO, should be a hell of a sleeper.
