These engine respond so well to bolt ons, that pulling out more power is really quite easy to do.
Im no expert but i feel like Ford has rung nearly all of the power out of that 4.9, but if I am wrong I can tell you that it is much simpler to mod a pushrod displacement over technology V8 than a DOHC with touchy sensors everywhere.

^ youve got it! I know it wouldnt happen but i would love to see a carbon fiber roof option kinda like on a BMW. Either way if GM put the camaro on weight watchers it would benefit heavily.
