I'll agree highly with the Audi/VW FSI 2.0T engine.

I have the same motor in my '06 Jetta GLI and this thing it a hoot to drive! It feels more like a big 6cyl than a 4cyl with all the low end torque. Add in the DSG manu-matic transmission and it is actually quicker than the regular manual.

Plus, a $600 ECM flash ups the power from 200hp/207tq to over 253hp/303tq with no other mods needed. :roxor:

All that and it knockes down an average of 27mpg's in mixed driving!

How the hell did the 4.6 get on there. It sucks and have first hand experience.

I would of had a Mitsubishi 4B11T 2.0 L turbocharged engine with MIVEC that has an unrated 291 hp and 300 lbf·ft before putting down a 4.6 engine from Ford. The sad part is that the new Evo's engine rating will prolly actually be the reading of the power to the wheel on the first dyno run; and a SOHC 4.6 mustang (bullitt, shelby gt or not) would dream to do that stock on a mustang dyno.
