All the high HP guys swap the IRS for a SRA for durability. As for the road coarse guys, they like the IRS, more stable in corners.
I just can't imagine 630 ft pounds of torque from the 5.8 doing any favors for an IRS. Bang! Ding Ding Ding. Call the rollback.
thanks.

If Saleen is doing a 5.8 blown Coyote, who's to say that the 5.8 rumored to be slipped into the new-platform Mustang isn't, in fact, a 5.8L COYOTE ??

Just puttin' that out there...
Wouldn't be called the trinity like the mag is saying though, would it?
Also, I thought all the design was going into the ecoboost 5.0 Why would they have another engine option that is only 100HP more? If the said is supposed to make 600HP? 100HP could be made just by modding the ecoboost.

All of the above is, thusfar, unsubstantiated magazine and website chatter... And along the same lines, just because C&D said "Trinity" doesn't mean it's so..

Until Ford makes an official press release, we're all just having coffee talk here.

Just like we were when all the styling debate was based upon re-posted pics of the EVOS combined with home-spun photoshop renderings...

My guess is that the IRS as an assy. is also heavier that the SRA.

The 2000 Cobra R got a IRS (like the later 03/04 Cobra's), and to put the IRS in a Mustang that otherwise came with a SRA required an IRS cradle in addition to the axle assy. to mount the IRS under the car. The cradle was a tube steel unit with gussets in the corners, this cradle itself added additional weight to the car that was not present with the SRA.

My bet is still on a turbo Coyote as the eventual top dog powerplant in the new 'stang.....

Wasn't there something about the hood height or clearance for a new 2015 auto safety standard that precluded fitting a big 5.8 plus supercharger?
