I've read that the 2013 GT has a few more horses then the 2012's. Not sure I understand why. Same engine no?

Bump. I've been wondering where the 8 extra horses came from

If I read correctly, it's been some time ago, the skirting on the pistons are different due to the removal of the oil squirters. With the redesign of the piston they were able to shed some weight, thus resulting in less parasitic drag in the bottom end and freeing up a few ponies. Someone correct me if I'm wrong.

^ this and some tweaks to the tune, which they do regularly anyway.

I defy anyone to repeatedly instrument significant improvement, though, as it's well within any margin of error in measuring equipment.

Yep, boss technology that was adapted by the new 5.0

Yep, 'cept they left out all the Boss stuff that matters, like the improved cylinder head flow, differences in cam events, the adjusted VVT settings, the intake manifold and the raised RPM limits. :(

Are you all saying that the internels are different on 13 gt then a 12 gt ? That's not true, they did the sane **** Chevy did with the v6 camaro , they just up the hp rating.

Have you seen the 12 pistons or the 13 pistons? Maybe you should take a look and you'll see the difference, I assure you they are not the same

His occupation says he's a male stripper, so depending on what type of strip club he works at, he might see 12-13 pistons every shift.
