Default Figured out why 2004 GT has 5 more HP

I was checking out the local Ricer HorsePower Encyclopedia and under S it has written:

quote:Spoiler: Minimum 5HP max 20HP
So, there you have it! The 2004 GT delivers 220HP instead of 215HP from the 2003 GT because of the stock spoiler that was added! [?]

Actually, it's because it has the higher-flow low-impedence injectors.

Man, I knew I should have had the dealer install a spoiler on my '03 before I took delivery of it. My wife said no to the spoiler. She said she didn't like the way it looked.[:I] Her actual quote was "It looks like a carry handle for Godzilla."

Just think of the extra power I'm missing out on...

Or the addition of no less than 2 new decals.

I was thinking... If I put a microphone on my exhaust and have it play on speakers on the outside of the roof, doors, hood, etc... I would gain atleast 23.4 HP, right?
