I guess "turd" is relative, but are you sure your car is running well? I watched our NA slightly pull an '04 Mustang GT last week. For a 4 cylinder I thought it did well. There are Miata guys doing engine swaps for the LE5: https://www.ecotecmiata.ca/

I personally like the power delivery of the NA. Its not as fast as the GXP but it feels more like a classic roadster and is easier to drive fast in the canyons (back when I had canyons to drive in). I guess I'm getting old.

My son's friend had the Mustang, he knew. I don't know the condition of the car, but still...

I get above 30MPG with my 2.4 if I drive 50 or 55 MPH. Here in Texas, I'd get run over if I did that.

GXP, dyno tuned. I get 32-34 in city and 39-42 on highway at 80mph. I get better mpg the faster I go.... 80mph seems to be the sweet spot.

I hope you recover soon Mark but i know it just drains you.. Many moons ago i was hit with it on my way to Stirgus on the scoot & ended up staying in Green Bay for for an extra day or two & once i got to Sturgis i parked the scoot & never road it till i headed back home.

yup i gotta take it eazy,Im used to being in the sun all day, now if I get over 73 degrees...Im about to puke or pass out, but I think thats almost gone now.good thin I have awesome ac in the house and shop.keeping the house at 72 in the florida summer would kill most ac's&pockets. low E windows&radiant barrier's really works wonders on 50 year old southern homes. Im going to attempt to go for a ride today,and possibly get a hair cut while I'm out....or not, Im starten to look like a wookie. at some point I gotta get this car to the dealer for the air bag recall. hopefuly the new accuator fixed the p0014 code and more power and better mpg is a result.
