Looks like about 260 rwhp stock and maybe 330 tuned for 93. Also, 93 made little/no difference over 87 on the stock tune.

I guess where my head is, a whipple stage 2 kit on sale is $7400 and installation is free at the house. That’s a long way from $11-12k.

Ford didn’t add the dual injection and 10 speed to the 2018 2.7 and call it the “second-generation” and “all new” in their press release?
