Sooo according to Ford the 2.0l power plant in the ST is close to its limits as far as hp and tq go. They said that without major turbo and fuel system upgrades there is not much more power you can get out of them. Idk but I am hoping they are alittle off and we can still get good numbers from them.

I want to say people will break 300's with ease.

Hum, they are at 126HP per L... pretty stout. That is almost 600 in a 4.6L V8. The almighty 2013 Shelby has less HP per L at 120.4. My 04 Cobra is at the limits without major $ being spent at 157HP per L (but it did take a lot of $ to get there).

So with all that said I sort of wonder about the capability of the all aluminum block to go much further... well I am positive Ford is a good conservative % below the capability of the motor for longevity. It will be interesting when someone finds the limit. But I do agree with Sleepin 4.6 people will find 300 when they get the tuning down pat.

I was thinking the same 300 at least. Ford said the new 2.3l ecoboost will be able to put close to 350 or so from the factory and it will be available in the 2015 mustang and the new RS if we get it over here :)

Hope it doesn't go the same way it did over at the Mazda forums with the Speed3 and Speed6. One by one, the cars with power mods started throwing rods. Lots of carnage on that site.

If the new Cadillac ATS 2.0 is any indicator, I don't see why you couldn't pump it up to at least 272 hp. That's not a lot of gain over 252...but it's closer to 300!

tuner on another st forum has already broke 300, w/ a tune, w/m, and a 40 shot of nos, he's working on a turbo upgrade at the moment. 300 has been done lol

Yeah the amount of ST information on this site compared to others is laughable at best.

This site it's very good in Focus in general, other forums just more specialties in new ST only

I wonder what the limits of the stock engine is after you doa turbo and fuel upgrades.

My '93 Mitsu Eclipse GSX was putting out 400 crankhorse from it's 2.0 with just a turbo,injectors and a fuel pump upgrade and over 8 years I never touched the engine but I didn't want to push it too far past that number.

bluedevil03 12-14-2012 08:35 AM

With a 40 shot of nos yes I can see over 300 but without it Idk if it will happen we will see tho.
