Stock, probably not much. Maybe engine weight is less, I don't know.

Gas consumption at a stop light, substantially better.

With a tune, hang on.

Are you kidding me?

15K will put 600hp down to the ground easy, including suspension.

25K would put 1000hp down with everything.

I forgot to add that they all rinse out the tanks with water. Maybe some more than others (thinking sheetz). My information is probably 7 years old or so, but I doubt that anything has changed.
