Tbh I'm wondering what they did tune wise. Because that engine base is more than capable of 500. Then the DH you'd think with the rods and stuff can handle more than 500. So Ford left extra food on the table for us to find for sure. I just wanna know what the hp for the other stands will be once released.Don’t let the cat out of the bag and kill my insurance ….
But the only diff is supposed to be in the tune.
That’s the million dollar (err 300k) question.Tbh I'm wondering what they did tune wise. Because that engine base is more than capable of 500.

I went from a 15 gtpp manual to a 22 2ss 1le manual camaro. I was considering the Dark Horse but once the pricing was announced, it was a hard pass for me. I also traded a 12 ss\rs manual camaro for the mustang pp back in the day. For the price per value camaro made more sense to me and it still does. It is pretty interesting that a Dark Horse, zl1 and a c8 can be in the same price range.I believe that a lot of us with the 18+ refresh will wait. But a number of owners of the 1st gen 15'-17' will make the switch.
I know what no lift shifts are.No lift shift and rev match are 2 different things. No lift shift means you never have to lift off the accelerator when shifting.
Oh I see I misunderstood you. Apologies. I'm not sure if the MT-82 has it or not. Good questionI know what no lift shifts are.
I meant C&D made a mistake as I believe the GT with the MT82 does NOT have no-lift shifting.
I know the Tremec does on the DH and Mach1.
I may be wrong, if the GT has it too, thats a great bonus!
S650 gained weight, comes with worse tires, (imo) isn't faster than the S550, and the price went up considerably. Combine that with high interest rates on loans and I think next summer dealers will be begging people to buy one.
I want to see the Dark Horse numbers personally. If it is only .1 faster than a 2021 Mach 1 I won't be surprised. That makes it a tough sell to me.
A lot of people will look at it like this: The old car is: lighter, faster, more easily modified (for now at least) and most importantly cheaper. That matters to a lot of people. There will be a mid-cycle refresh where Ford will update the S650 and I'm sure it will be given more power. Until that happens S550 owners may just wait.
