Icon10 2011 V6?

Hey i was sitting at work today and thought what am i going to do when my little 2.3 quits i want to still get good gas mileage but i want more power... so after about 30 minutes of thinking i saw one of the new 3.7's driving by and it hit me DUH 305 HP 30 mpgs 6 speed so im now determined to make it happen but im going to wait til my 2.3 kicks the bucket 240,xxx miles and its still going strong maybe that will give me some time to let people roll their stangs and i can get a doner car

Good luck with that. 2011 technology in a 1996. It's not just an engine, it's a computer.

I'm with ya. Waiting for someone to roll the new F150 with the ecoboost. I'd have to swap everything though, fuel system(direct injection), motor, tranny, computer, wiring.........................
But tell me that wouldn't be worth every aggravating hour spent doing that job!! 420lb/ft in my little thunderbolt. AND 20+mpg!!!

Well if i had that much power, I wouldn't be getting 20mpg. I'm a little foot heavy.
