I posted this in another thread but it went to the back of the line so maybe better here!

I am fairly new here but been on a ton of Cobra sites when I had one!
I have 2 questions:
1. Does anyone know if there truly is a chip that can be used to open up the horsepower to about 40+? I read all these sites that promise that and since I honestly can't deny it, I don't think one exists. True?
2. Can someone point me to where the reason for the development of the gt 350 is? I've heard it was to compete against the BMW M3. Hummm, Didn't think THAT car was really a competition.
thanks boys

I don't think it is as simple as just adding a chip. Remember this motor is only 5.2 liters and is rated at 526HP. I don't think there is much more that can be wrung out of this without creating drive-ability or longevity issues. I think this car was developed because they could. It is clearly the ultimate Mustang, despite its flaws.

1. Not sure if you are looking for a Ford released product for a hp increase, you can certainly get an aftermarket custom tune that will produce 30 - 40 more horsepower on 93 octane, there are a few good companies to choose from. Of course you run the risk of a warranty claim denial for any engine problems.
2. The GT350 is fairly unique and can compete with many high end foriegn and domestic track based cars. I never heard any souces that a BMW was specifically targeted.

I read somewhere that quoted a Ford Performance engineer saying that they were originally targeting the 911 s and then shifted focus to the GT3. Quite a lofty goal honestly but Id say it certainly competes. Thoughts?

Coming out of a Carrera S w/PDK and Sport Chrono, (2013 991), it does compete with the Porsche in 0-60 and track performance. Nowhere near the quality fit and finish though. However, I could buy 2.5 GT350's for what the Carrera S cost :)

I would agree with that. German over engineering is impressive, but the value you get with these cars is unreal.
