Gotta keep ahead of the Mustang V6. More power = good thing. Cafe = bad thing

Thanks for the info.

Honestly, I expected more. Maybe, as other have said, this is only the first volley of information and more is to come.
Im sure you really think its too bad that it does "little or nothing". These are the types of comments ford guys throw out there that basically say "HAHA" without actually saying it.

Although I agree its not enough to do anything, but the average car buying idiot will say oh the Camaro has more HP. Thats what Im buying.

Is that the same v6 engine tweaked?
Maybe they are adding the performance airbox stock, and it was able to get that?

Now if they would only release the GM Airbox

Not too suprised here. Wasn't expecting many drastic changes after the first year. Some people just seem to set themselves up for disappointment by expecting too much. I myself am happy with what I have and could care less about a powered passenger seat since I'm never in it. If you like the car with what it has then you'll buy it. If not, you can either wait until next year and see what may change or go buy something else.

i'm pleased with the changes, and i expect there may be a few more minor changes possibly.

I'm not sure what everyone was expecting, but 2011 isn't a design overhaul, just a new model year... i wouldn't be expecting huge changes until whenever they to that total overhaul.

Hopefully the 8 hp came via a factory tune... say, one that could be applied to 2010 V6's?

I was hoping for a gear option that could help drive down the insane prices companies are charging for gears right now.

I'd consider that a win for new buyers. Damn no HUD for me :( Green SS Sweet! No Z28 nuggets?

I'm going to go out on my wild horse and say that this is exactly what happened. GM: Assuming Ford would beat their numbers buy no more than 5 hp, left some breathing room in the 2010 tune... then with a simple program change, poof, mustang numbers beat at least for another model year.

If GM is truly listening to us, they noticed that ABM outpolled Synergy Green by almost 80%, and they'll offer ABM or a similar medium blue again.
