Still not 200 crank horespower is my point. I'm not trying to bash the almost 30whp gain. Just saying it is what it is.

The 2013 GT500 is in the same boat. Ford rates the engine hp at 650 but it was recently dynoed at 614rwhp. That's only 5% drivetrain loss..... So either Ford has discovered a miracle drivetrain which seems to defy the laws of physics or Ford is in the game of under rating their hp figures.

Which are you more likely to believe?
