The ecoboost engines are as follows: The 3.5L is a twin turbo, the 2.0L is a single turbo.

Nah, just flash it back to stock before you take it for warranty...

I'm hoping this new motor is as tunable as the 3.7 and 5.0 mustang motors are. Those engines with similar VVT have proven very tunable. I wonder if they can do a cammed tune on a 4 cylinder? haha.
