Hey, just realized that my DC3 is 220HP and not 215HP?
OK, here's the thinker...what's the difference between last years 215HP and this years 220HP?

Lemme guess, last year when they tested they forgot to turn the air-conditioner off?? LOL...

I've got a good question to pose-
I'm interested in the 180 HP turbo "lite" because of regular gas and that it adds enough "beans" that I'd be happy, but that's an '04 option. With the deals on '03s, could I get a GT and have it programmed to be 180HP regular-burning? I'd get suspension, wheels, etc of GT for about what an '04 turbo lite would go for.
Food for thought.

You can run regular fuel in your GT if you want to. Saves about a $1 a tank around here. Premium fuel is not required, just recommended.

I wouldn't let anything under 93 octane even come close to my new DC3.

Hi!

In Europe, the GT4 turbo is 223 HP. It needs super-plus fuel (98 octan) and it is limited at 200 km/h - 125 miles/h.

my understanding it is the fuel injectors, also in the srt-4 case the care was underrated....

It's all software! No differences in hardware, that I have seen, just the programing in the logic module. I saw limited with this motor, looked exactly the same under the hood, still intercooled, same manifolds, ect. They are just limiting it's power, so the Gt is the high end performance version.

The change included injectors, but from what I keep reading, the 03 cars were allready runinng on the rich side anyway, so higher flow coupled with a more agrressive computer, may be why. But even thought they were running rich, the injector pulsewidth was maxed out at 100%under high boost conditions, maybe they did this as an extra margine of saftey, to make it through the warrenty period?
