It looks like people are thinking the EB 4 cyl Mustang is going to run mid 13's right out of the box... If so, it should be a piece of cake to get it into the 12s.
I think mid 13's is asking a lot. do we know the specs for the turbo 4 mustang? The main reason I say this, is because of the weight of the mustang. i'm going to guess high 13's at best. like 13.7 or 13.8.

I think it's 305/300 right now, subject to change. 6 speed manual or auto plus 3.15, 3.31 or 3.55s - again, I don't remember which.

Logically, those who want a V8 camaro should praise and demand Chevy make a 2.0T available. Better mpg average for the EPA means the V8s can stay longer.

Any V8 lover who is opposed to it is not thinking strategically.

"It's tradition!"

The Camaro, Firebird, and mistang had 4 cyl. Only thing new is these 4 cyl are very good.

I would rather have a modern turbo 4 than any 305 V8 that Chevy ever produced. Although 305s do make good boat anchors.

I like the cut of his jib!

A nice turbo 4 would be fine by me (turbo 6 would have been sick though ), but to echo what others have said - it wouldn't work in a car similar in weight/design to the Gen5.

If they let the design stray too far, they'll lose customers. If they don't change it enough, they won't gain any customers. Not exactly win/win. I don't envy engineers!

I like NA cars, but wouldn't turn my nose up to a tried and tested turbo like the 2.0T running in the CTS and Malibu. Unfortunately it sounds like GM is already planning on getting every little bit from the 2.0T at stock, so a tune alone won't yield much. I don't think mods will get as much as some are suggesting above. That doesn't mean the engine won't work, just means the ceiling isn't as high as some would have you believe.

Well, for a few examples... Mercedes has a 2.0T that comes factory with 360hp and 332ftlbs, and on of the tuning companies for Mercedes has a canned tune that adds 50hp and 60ftlbs on top of the already impressive output. And every one of Ford's ecoboost engines has a tune package that adds a good bit of power (I forget horsepower, but usually 50-100ftlbs).

An I4T with a 3" downpipe split to dual 2.5" outlets, an intake and a good tune can hurdle 400hp and maintain its awesome gas mileage. (Also the 2.0T in the Cadillacs and Malibu has already been tuned for an average of 50hp and 50ftlbs stock by one company whom I again forget, and around 80whp by IPF) http://www.cadillacforums.com/forums...rades-ats.html

Not to mention the easy turbo swap you can do for what most are spending for a tune and full exhaust work. Haven't heard of a domestic car that's boosted from factory that is hard to tune or slap on extra hp easily.

Many don't like them but look at the srt 4... That is a beast of a Neon lol.

Exactly. The limiting factor is fueling, nothing more.

I actually think I heard a local SRT4 Neon that had dual 2.5" outlets... man, that thing sounded big.

Well 50hp/tq would be good with stock parts. 71-82 seems lofty though (?) without additional improvements. Hopefully we're about to find out in a year or so.

Not bad from a 4-banger, not bad at all.

I love the idea. This will be the SRT neon all over again....except without the "neon" look,affordable car that with some time and research can be a solid car.

I absolutely love 4 banger turbos, I just think they don't belong in a muscle car. I know there's no fighting it but nothing puts a bigger smile on your face than getting in a good classic muscle car

Before the purchase I was going to get a mazdaspeed3, hell of a little beast, but a little AWD rumor for next year made me wait and now they discontinued the MS3.


But as long as the Camaro loses some weight, a 4 cyl turbo will do great.

Camaro V6 0-60: 6 seconds, quarter mile: 14.3 seconds
MS3 0-60: 5.3 seconds, quarter mile: 13.8 seconds

I get scared every time a cute little hatch pulls next to me at a stop light! Really need to get some twins
