To many variables to say. I do believe the out of the box HP was supposed to be 270. Changing sparkplugs and their gap, cool air induction, no alcohol gas (https://www.google.com/search?sourceid=navclient&ie=UTF-8&rlz=1T4GGNI_enUS508US508&q=No+alchol+gas ) and a few other things can give you 20-30 hp. I piked up 22hp with a KN air filter and some Halo plugs and some prolong engine oil treatment.

You can have all kinds of stickers made up with anything in the world on them. I would not put any stock in non-certified labels. If you really want to know take it and have it dyno-tested and get a technician to certified a copy of the print out for verification and showing off with your friends and acquaintances. Stickers are no more than window dressing. I avoid advertising anything about my vehicle, it is another step away from a car thief and having your ride stripped in a chop shop. Deputy Jim
