    AMV8 4.3 power upgrade from AM official

    It is officially coming, will bring the "old" 4.3l engine to N400 specs, 20 more hp and 10Nm torque (torque at mid and high RPM, hp at high RPM).
    A blurb also about better use of high octane gas.
    The kit includes an new ECU and a new airbox with variable intake.

    No pricing yet (heard around $3k), but I hope to do it as soon as possible.

    Nice to see AM taking care of their old customer (you can retrofit power package and suspension improvements), unlike Porsche...

    Re: AMV8 4.3 power upgrade from AM official

    No one is going to like the price though... much higher than rumored...

    Re: AMV8 4.3 power upgrade from AM official

    Price makes it much more viable to just go for an 09 I bet...

    Re: AMV8 4.3 power upgrade from AM official

    Exactly, with the N400 power mod and an exhaust you are looking at $10k+ to reach less or equal performance than a 4.7l engine....

    6 hours labor to install an airbox and reflash an ECU...

    Re: AMV8 4.3 power upgrade from AM official

    $6k as some wiring neesds to be installed... Ouch.

    Re: AMV8 4.3 power upgrade from AM official

    Wonder what it'll be in GBP... and if you'd really notice the difference....

    Think I've got an expensive enough month coming up on the AM... 3yr service Pounds1k, 2 rear tyres Pounds700, toying with extending the warranty Pounds2k...insurance as well Think I'll be crocheting peoples Christmas presents this year

    Love the car though.. don't regret it one bit

    Re: AMV8 4.3 power upgrade from AM official

    I find that the gbp costs are almost double the USD costs. For example. The Sports pack (MY09) costs 3000 USD, or 2500gbp!
