I've seen a few attempts at vehicles in modern. I'll run through my deckbuilding notes
Challenge; meta. Lots of people do really unfair things with artifacts in modern, and artifact hate is core thanks to affinity/kci, so people will have dedicated hate.
Oppertunity; Tools. Modern artifacts have an insane variety of powerful support, from Dispatch/Galvanic BlastMox Opal all the way to Artificer's Intuition/Chief Engineer/Fabricate/Trash for Treasure There are powerful tools in red, blue, white and some functional oddities in black and green. A Life from the Loam manlands/crew control list might be playable.
Crew wants you to have creatures on the board, (and heart loves the variety of powerful modern plainswalkers). Modern wants your creatures to be self-protecting, cheap and immediately useful.
Bomat Courier is perfect. Lingering Souls is great for crewing. So is Bitterblossom. Most 'crew 1' lets you drop a pair of tokens, lose 1 to lili, then kill lili with the vehicle. Fleetwheel Cruiser trades well into most walkers thanks to haste. weatherlight/conquerers look ok in longer matchups. Slag Fiend might help make up a 'cantrip graveyard artifact crew' deck.
Mardu gets a great low-cost instant options and sideboard options, which should help it fighitng against hate. From k-command to Rakdos Charm, Lightning Helix to Rest in Peace, its all there. Just figure out what your meta doesn't want to be playing against, and jam that in there.
The big battle is against efficient midrange lists. If they can trade even for your low cost creatures, you will find it difficult to crew, so tokens are basically mandatory. Even then, all those sideboard Ensnaring Bridge answers also trade well, so plan carefully.

Hey, cool deck, I had something similar going with my 8-Soul, and I tried to use Etched Champion and Smuggler's Copter. I splashed white because I think Dispatch is an under appreciated budget removal spell. My one piece of input would be to remove the 2 duresses from the SB or to fit 4 in there, with 2 you just won't do what you would expect to do with duresses against decks that you would sideboard them in.

Overall I am a huge fan of this deck. I did some super basic testing with your list and my only worry with your list is that it seems risky to run only one copy of Grapeshot I know you have Noxious Revival to get it back if it gets countered but at my LGS everyone runs some kind of graveyard hate so I would personally stick in another copy. For the sideboard an option you could look at is a way to get rid of any annoying creatures that are stopping your plan and or slowing you down. You have Ghirapur AEther Grid but that might come to late to deal with something like Eidolon of the Great Revel. Now this is all based on local meta but some fun cards could be Galvanic Blast Dispatch or just Path to Exile. Thanks for dealing with all my suggestions. If you ever play this deck in paper or MTGO I would like to know how it faired.

Chill dawg. Sorry it took so long to respond. School has just started.
Again, I'm not a cEDH player. Strictly casual. It is simply my opinion that Firesong and Sunspeaker aren't competitive, and would have a hard time dealing with tuned 2.5 decks. Boros in general will never be competitive because it's missing all of the following things:
- Good Tutors.
- Good Card draw.
- Good Ramp.
- Good Counterspells.
- Good Combos.
- Good Recursion.
- Good Generals.
... all of which seem to be staples in cEDH for as far as I can tell.
Look man, no one loves Boros more than me, but even I know it's the worst EDH color pair haha
Anyway, that's not the point.
It wouldn't take to much effort to make a deck more competitive than mine. Mine is sub-optimal on purpose. Just fill your deck with as much card draw and ramp possible instead of my preferred Sunforger package.
I don't know of any infinite damage combos you could use. You'd probably be better served by a Google search.
There isn't any "single card" that can loop damage and life...without decking out? Not sure your query makes any sense.
Burn spells: Again, you can't just google/gatherer search red burn spells? Or look at my two decks I linked for ideas? But also: Price of Progress.
Cuts and Curve: I think you're gonna have a real hard time making a 2 average CMC deck that can still hit hard in the late game.
Cut Felidar Sovereign. Cut Test of Endurance. They will never resolve/be exile before your upkeep. Cut Etali, Primal Storm, cut Stolen Strategy, they are too random and wont do anything in a competitive environment... divining top makes them near useless.
That's all for now. Remember, this is your deck, so you have to do most of the leg work. And please have patience with those you've asked for help. They will come or they won't, that shouldn't stop you from finding stuff on your own.
Also try looking at some other Fire&Sun decks? I looked at your most recently view decks and it's just mine and yours.
Also, test out people's upvote buttons. That goes a long way in getting people to like and help you.
