How to make the EcoBoost Mustang not stink


As someone who loves cars, I want to love the Mustang. I really do. But I have a harder time welcoming him into my heart, mainly due to the huge cloud of negativity that covers every positive aspect with negative representations. In my 26 years on this planet, 90% of the Mustang owners that I have interacted with at auto events have been idiots, accepting nothing but their glorious Mustang. From flat-billed teens rocking their 4th Gen ‘Stang V6, to the middle-aged divorcee clinging to any hope of his twenties through a fully restored Foxbody, beating up Miller High Life and effectively tarnishing any value in his words .

The latter may be offensive to some people, and for those people, I have a little advice: stop what you’re doing, sell your car, and accept that not everyone feels the same way about your car as you do. Sure, there are some really fast Mustangs, some really clean restored Pony, and some amazing owners with a lot of positive information and great knowledge stored under their lid. Reflect on whether that’s you, change accordingly, or move on.

Now the reason we’re all here: the 2015+ EcoBoost Mustang. In my opinion, the 6G is one of the most attractive cars to ever exist on the Ford show floor. The lines are simple but exotic enough to value a second look, acceptable fuel economy in today’s competitive market, and enough factory pop to satisfy the needs of most enthusiasts. The list of good things is long for the 6G Mustang, and the EcoBoost option adds another outlet for car lovers and performance gurus alike. It offers a growing list of aftermarket mods equal to that of the V8-powered ‘Stang, meaning it will only get better and better as time goes on.

This leads to the point of this post: breaking out of the predisposed clique that all Mustang owners are automatically placed into once they leave the dealership lot. Your opinion matters – Yes. But you don’t need to cast aside other people’s feelings about your car as if they were trash from yesterday. Stop being an idiot. Stop burnout in competitions in an attempt to bolster your ego. For crying out loud, really interact with the Chevy guys. You may not like the Camaro or Corvette, but don’t ignore them. They have wheels, motors, and they’re amazing too. We are all car types, we are all here for the same reason, and we all value the approval of our fellow man. The first step to being accepted is accepting your own weaknesses, and being a jerk is a weakness that does not deserve forgiveness, which is why you will always be stuck in the niche of pimple-faced, jort-faced teens wearing middle-aged men in bowling jerseys. . and drinking overrated beer.

The Mustang EcoBoost has great potential to do so, and I think it can project Mustang and Mustang owners into a new stratosphere. Here’s why: The EcoBoost is turbocharged. What is the first thing that comes to mind when you think of turbocharger? For me, these are weekend and track day car meetups, which generally attract both young and old. In my experience, these events flourish casual car types who never consider mods into savvy aftermarket consumers hungry for performance, value, and more knowledge. They are also not afraid to communicate strengths and weaknesses regarding modifications.

As a 2015 Mustang owner who has already installed a few aftermarket EcoBoost parts, I am doing my part to educate new owners and new to Mustangs in general. I hope others will heed my request, take action and move on to make the Mustang name better and feared rather than ignored and neglected.
