i beg to differ there "Travis"......i planned on trading my 2018 2.0T for a 2022 GT(just because....)....HOWEVER......after the "minor" mods i have done (JB4-MAP3,Shell 93octane, K$N, plugs), i can honestly say i am having "second" thoughts. at a 2 lane stoplight, i am in right lane behind soccer-mom van and in the left lane, a BMW 5 series (2015 or so) and in front of him.........Ferrari FF (one with the small back seat)...green light, Ferrari punches it and the bimmer hit at about the exact same time. i get around the van damn near push the gas pedal through the floor, JB4 lit up and i went around the BMW as if standing still....Ferrari 2 cars lengths ahead and saw me go around the BMW. big cloud of black smoke came from his exhaust, and the lead rapidly increased(as it should have). got to my turn off and BMW followed i pulled over and was asked if i had a GT minus badges. no sir, i don't..just the 2.0T with some added "motivation".....moral of the story is.....this 2.0T is bad ass (if you want it to be) and purrs like a kitten when i set the JB4 to MAP0......The best performance upgrade for a 2.0 Stinger is to trade it for a 3.3 Stinger. The V6 Stinger is the only way to get real performance with a Stinger.
Agreed and chasing power is a trap, firstly because it doesn't take that long to adapt. After seeking performance by means of V8's, twin turbos and high performance diesels 300 HP now feels like a 1.0L econobox to me.Performance is relative! I am very happy with my 2.0T. cruises effortlessly at XMPH, and gets 34 MPG doing that. I do have a problem with traction on my RWD and in fast sweepers the rear feel real light. Sure a little extra power is always welcomed.
