Ford is moving towards production of this engine. It would be cool to see it in a Mustang. Here's what it looks like in a Lincoln MKR Concept:



here's a few blurbs:

http://www.motorauthority.com/cars/ford/ford-twinforce-to-debut-in-2009-lincoln-mks/

"The first car to feature Ford’s new TwinForce engine technology will be the 2009 Lincoln MKS, itself based on the MKR concept shown earlier this year. TwinForce is the name of Ford’s new range of fuel-efficient engines, labeled so because of the twin effects of improved power and fuel economy.

The engine that will debut in the upcoming MKS will be a flex-fuel 3.5L V6 delivering 415hp and 400lb-ft of torque thanks to a pair of turbochargers and direct injection technology. According to Edmunds, Ford is also developing a 2.5L four-cylinder variant that will eventually power the Fusion sedan and Edge crossover by the end of the decade, as well as a new dual-clutch six-speed PowerShift gearbox that should also appear in the new MKS.

Performance buffs will be pleased to know that the Mustang is destined to receive a 5.0L TwinForce V8, while an even larger 6.2L engine will be relegated to the Blue Oval’s full-size pickups and utility vehicles. Both V8 engines will not only benefit from TwinForce technology, but they’ll also feature a cylinder deactivation mechanism."

I'd rather have the one shown in a Mustang than the v8. Even the one shown is overkill but still slightly reasonable, for a daily driver that is.

Yeah but the v6 has always been the underachieving mustang, the mustang for girls. A twin turbo v6 mustang would be cool but, they would have to make the v8 extremely potent. That is if the v6s will have the power they are claiming to have.

I'm thinking if they are going to do the honkin v8 mentioned then this for the v6 is a good choice for the 6.
