The 2.3's are about 150hp plus or minus a few at the wheels on a cool day with no humidity. SVT's are in the mid-to-high 150s but only have about 140 or so Tq - which is significantly lower than the the 2.3 cars.
For reference - my car made 146 hp with the following mods:
1) Cosworth CAI
2) Cosworth Exhaust header
3) Focussport 2.25" exhaust - no cat
4) Focussport high-performance tune
5) OEM throttle body
The car made 122 hp bone stock -so these bolt ons were worth 24 hp.

|slo1||So how many horsepower do these things make?|

Weight is also up for the 2.3 liter cars.
Based on Ford's testing, the cars should be very close this year, especially if you the zetec and 2.0 duratec run the 4.06 ring and pinion.

As an FYI, Paul is one of the 2 drivers in Grand Am that I crew for.
He's a very good man.

I've found over the years that vendor's margins are so small on race tires that there's not a whole lot wiggle room available. The only real savings to be had are on the shipping fees and/or mounting.
My local shop offers $10 mounting and FREE flipping between events to racers. That's a couple of hundred bucks over the life of a set of tires.

|slo1||I figured everyone is using the same tire and size so it would be cheaper if everyone bought them from the same vendor?|
