Default Whats the difference

I read that a SSEi has 240 hp but a GTP has 260 hp? Any of you made your SSEI make 260hp like the GTP?

It takes quite a bit of mods to even get to 300hp, let alone 400hp......most modded Bonnie'* here are probably running mild mods and are around 260-275hp at the most I would think. I'm guessing myself at around 260hp max with the mods I have.

in short YES.... the biggest difference is the SC....the Bonne used the Eaton Gen III and the 04+ GP uses the Eaton Gen V blower that is much more efficient, also the 04+ has different connection rods

to bolt up the GEN V you need the L32 LIM and the V blower, you also need a TB adapter since the GP uses the electronic throttle
