Makes more sense, plus who'd put regular in knowing you'll get a Downpipe's worth of buff ponies for $6-10 more, or for the price of a KN filter plus shipping

Good to know - I will be able to self tune my engine based upon need. I wonder how noticeable 15HP will be in a 4door FE tank? Also interesting to see a 25HP drop in the 2.3, that I'd guess you'd notice, especially in a 2 door.

Yeah, I would have never thought Premium fuel could make that much difference.
My wishy-washy buddy with his V6 Mustang said the same thing, only difference was it was like a KN filter difference for his car, while for us it's essentially a Downpipe for the hp and a KN filter plus straighter intake tubing for the tq

According to this, 2.3t on Reg is 216whp auto/221 manual, and 236a/242m, while for the 2.7t, 248 reg/261 prem. Of course, take that with a bit of a grain of salt, it's a guestimator, but in general, if you get the crank hp #'s out of whp from dynoing, you're set

*Note, I did that using 4wd instead of rwd, so correction with rwd instead of 4wd would be 227a/232m reg, 248a/254m super (2.3), and 261r/274s for the 2.7

I'm delighted to see the HP on the 2.3 running Premium gas being about 10% HIGHER than Ford originally published.
Once again, they've over-delivered on the Bronco. Bronco 2.3L already had more power than my J33P Grand Cherokee which is great for my type off-roading, now its even better.
Way to go FORD!:geek:

Since I'm never going regular unless its some station that doesn't have anything higher, already more powerful than a Wrangler

Just a note for those thinking to just throw in a fill up of high octane when wanting a power boost, it usually takes about 2 tanks worth for the octane detection to adjust to the higher octane

Going back to my previous Intercooler thread:
INTERCOOLER & CHARGE PIPES

-The stock intercooler on the Mustang is small. While it does okay on the stock tune, once we try and push more boost, especially in the high RPMs, the temperatures rise rapidly. With the new giant intercooler, this all changed.

-CP-E offers two intercoolers, and several charge pipe options for the Mustang. For these tests, we used our Stage-2 race intercooler. This is one of the biggest cores on the market, at 21″x17″x3.75″ or 1339 cubic inches. For comparison, the stock intercooler is 5.5″x20,6″x3,25″ or 368 cubic inches. This means our race intercooler has a 3.6 times larger core than stock! The smaller CP-E stock-fitment intercooler would have worked just fine for this test & allowed us to keep the grill shutters, but the owner of the car wanted to leave room for future upgrades.

We did several tests with the new intercooler, to compare the charge-air temperatures. The intercooler was able to pick up 30whp and 11wtq with zero tuning changes!

New numbers = 275whp and 315wtq.

The stock intercooler was really holding it back! Compared to the peak of 173 degrees of the stock intercooler, the new CP-E intercooler kept the peak temperature down at 90 degrees. Keep in mind, it was 83 degrees in the shop! We also loaded the COBB Stage-2 tune as well, which is made to optimize a larger intercooler. It picked up a few more HP here.

We then went back and loaded the stock tune – just to see if there was any difference with the bigger intercooler on a totally stock tune. Even with the throttle being closed most of the run (due to the aftermarket intake), the car picked up 10hp in the top-end vs the stock baseline. This shows that even if you don’t plan on tuning the car, the intercooler is still a worthwhile investment for efficiency, cooling, and power.

I haven't seen any specs on the diameter of the stock exhaust pipes, but upgrading the down pipe and exhaust to a 3" or 3.5" diameter will also imediately improve turbo spin-up and power
