    That would be fun right until the motor broke. An extra 240 hp is a lot to ask out of stock internals.

      My thoughts exactly. I don't know the internal strength of this engine, it might take the extra 240 HP for a while, depending on how you drive it. But when it blows, it will blow big. Then you've got a $33000 paper weight or yard ornament.
      I guess if you have plenty of money for toys, it would be a fun one to have. I'll never know....

        There is a reason the Ford Racing tune that is still covered by warranty doesnt add anywhere near that much power. The Ford tune adds 100 hp at 6000 rpm and an average of 40 hp gain from 2500-5000. It only adds 25 hp peak gain though, and 335 hp is a long ways from 550.
