2011 V6 Torque Curve

I found a torque curve graph of the old V6 and I'm wondering what the new 2011's torque curve looks like. Anyone got a chart?

Here's the 2010 V6 for comparison.

They were both Dyno'd by Motor Trend but it seems they only released the 5.0 curve, IIRC.

I just sent a PM to Edward Loh over at Motor Trend to see if they have the charts. I'll post if I hear anything back.

I test drove a 2011 V6 Mustang auto today. Pretty interesting. Punch it from a dead stop & it acts like a typical V6. Probably wouldn't break the tires loose. But around 3500 rpm it REALLY wakes up. I let it redline shift (6800) all the way to 85 or 90 mph. Not your mom & dad's V6 for sure. It loves to rev.

Did you drive one with the standard rear end or did it have the optional 3.31?

Yeah, that's with the 2.73 (blah). The 3.31 should take care of the low end torque lag.

The 3.31's really make that big a difference off the line? The only part of my purchase I'm worrying about is that awesome acceleration feeling....don't wanna miss it.

Yes, the 3.31's will make a huge difference for off-the-line acceleration. They are a must on this car for anyone who actually enjoys driving.

And the 3.31 was my last "Yeah, I gotta have that" option on the car. I knew it would reduce fuel economy VERY SLIGHTLY but the trade off is SO worth it. For the money, definitely worth it. You'll feel it every time you take off.

2011 V-6 Mustang. Premium and Pony Package. 3.73 Gears.
Garage
The 2.73 rear gears are only there for the over 300 horsepower and over 30 miles per gallon (EPA) rating 'record'. I went with the 3.31 rear ratio. From what i've read, even with the 3.31 gear ratio the engine is only doing 1,800 r.p.m. at 60 m.p.h.

According to the order guide and Ford's B&P page, the 3.31 can be added to any V6 as long as it's not a vert.
