I know everyone likes to say its just a baseline, but 228rwhp? Even if the car was an automatic to be down 26% due to driveline loss is just way to much.

Keep in mind usually Ford wheels weigh a ton. I would move on with some Forgestar F14s in 19x10 and a19X11 and move on to a 265/35/19 with 295/35/19 rears.

I am disappointed with the tests to be frank. Especially the Ecoboost 2.3L, I mean 310hp, 70 more rated hp than a BMW 328i and yet the Bimmer is just as quick. Did I mention the BMW is only 180lbs...

BMW has been using DI on their cars since 2007 with the 335i with no issues. Now the N54 motors had other issues mainly HPFPs and such but carbon buildup on the intake valves was not one of them.
