I didn't. We already had a 420 HP engine in 2014 and the Boss was rated at 440. I was expecting 430-440 HP and we got exactly that. People are kidding themselves if they thought they'd get 450+ from the GT alone. I still don't expect a number close to 450+ anytime soon, honestly, except for the special editions. Besides 2011, we've always gotten marginal increases for the GT. Nothing super drastic. The biggest was 260-300 from 2004-05. Even 09-10 was only 15 hp.

What I wasn't expecting, however, was the weight. Considering all the rumors of the 200-300lbs diet.
