You know that whole, “Made Tough With Chevy Stuff” line, the one that tends to whip up the Ford fans into a rage in short order? It seems lately that nobody noticed the options box on the list that allowed a GM LS engine to be fit into a Ford Mustang, because there are a lot of them out there. For some, crossbreeding is a mortal sin, or at the least is as infuriating and unwelcomed as a wasp sting, or an unexpected visit from the in-laws. If it came from Ford, it should be powered by Ford, period, point blank, with no room for an argument.
Well, here’s some evidence to back that argument up. A 4.6L mod motor still resides under the hood of this New Edge Mustang, and backing up the cammer is a 76mm turbocharger. It’s not the path of least resistance, but who cares…when the light drops and the car hikes up onto it’s suspension and moves out, nobody is going to care which engine is underhood, so long as the Mustang is running in the eights at over 170 miles an hour. And we are digging the “through the hood” show-off factor…it’s no Roots blower, but all the same, it’s badass to see everything hanging out in the breeze!
