I agree.

That's what I meant, the Bullitt models only made 275hp with the intake, throttle bodies, under drive pullies, and freer flowing exhaust(20% less restrictive).

But a better powerband if you look at dynos.. It might only be 10hp peak.. But the diffrence in the full powerband it's pretty significant..
