Dodges site puts the 2.7 at 190. My mechanic says it has a + or - of 6 hp and they always list the plus and round up..he could be wrong but thats a real specific answer to my question and he didnt even stutter when he said it.......

E85 has a higher octane rating that regular (i think it is even higher that premium) so they wouldn't lower the compression for that. If they tested the output with E85 they would have got lower numbers though.

E85 is a higher octane, and Ford reported a 5% hp INCREASE when using E85 in their FFV's...as for the lower gas mileage, might be lack of specific engine tuning

Ford is full of it, you will never get better gas mileage with E85 than gasoline. Gasoline has a much higher energy content than E85.

The web site could always be wrong. If you look at the specs for the SE model in a different area of the web site it says 186 HP at 6400 RPM.

The web site also says the R/T is down to 335 HP and 375 lb/ft of torque this year.

It's 1972 all over again.
