Newbie looking to buy my first Mustang HELP

Hey everyone,
I am a 51 year old male, looking to buy my first Mustang.
Kids are all grown. So the wife and I would like to buy a new Mustang, just not sure if we want Ecoboost or Gt.
I like the extra power and sound of the Gt the wife hates it but her dream car is a Mustang and would love the ecoboost.
I don't think I would ever use the extra power in the Gt But Love Love the sound. Can i do anything to make the Eco sound deeper? Is the Eco fast enough?

Thanks for any help

I agree. We started looking at a V6 automatic for my wife and ended up with a 5.0 with manual transmission and Brembos. She can't drive a manual. It is still a sore spot 8 years later. Good luck with what ever you decide.

Since this isn't your first rodeo I'm probably preaching to the choir - but I'd definitely recommend taking whatever you're going to buy to a trusted mechanic before going through with the purchase. I've seen some mustangs that sound great only to find out the owners removed the catalytic converter cores and spoofed the O2 sensor results.... be careful out there!

Congratulations on your purchase. The Ecoboosts are actually pretty quick. I have seem a few on the track that do quite well. They are lighter than the GT's and handle well, they just don't sound as good.

I have the MBRP street catback on my EB. It still doesn't sound nearly as good as a V8, but a lot better than the stock 4 banger.

The ecoboost is a nice car, comfortable, handles well, and is fast. The GT is faster and that V8 sound can't be beat. If she is dead set against the V8, the eco will be fun, but will never sound as good as a GT.
