I find myself drawn to the GT Peformance over the Dark Horse. The negligible power difference isn't worth the $10-15K premium over the GT before dealer markups for someone who won't ever take it to the track.

The items I wish the GT Performance offered would be 305 rear tires and the larger exhaust tips, but those can be solved.

Front & Rear Brakes on Dark Horse appear to be Different.

Front seems to be using the 2 piece Hub and Rotor and Brembo Caliper from the GT350.

Rear Brake appears to be a 1 Piece Hub and Rotor, similar to the Front Rotor on the GT Performance Pack, but with a GT350 Caliper and GT500 E-Brake Caliper.

Glad to see they're keeping the pinned aluminum hats up front. I saw the rear brakes first and thought they were downgrading versus the Shelbies. Noticed they got rid of them for the Mach 1.

Well, we know that the gt has at least 480hp which means we will likely get 485, but with the dh, they are targeting 500, meaning they have to have at least 505 due to the 20 hp more rule. 510-520hp is likely the range of hp we will get. Considering 100hp per liter is a lot, if we get 520 hp, that would be 104 hp per liter. Ford def wants bragging rights, even if the competitors will bow out after 2023. The short amount of time between the launch of the s650 and the end of 2023 is enough to give ford a leg up on chevy and dodge. If this seems like rambing, sorry. But also remeber 10-15k is not just power, it is mach1, gt350, and gt500 parts in one.
