Not sure why but this is for the 08 Magnum and not the Charger.
It's a partial redesign so it may have to be retested for HP output.

The 2.7 had 200 hp in the old Sebring and 190 in the LX.

Maybe the drop has something to do with it being a flex fuel engine now???

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.......

i think this is probably right. i think the flex fuel engines run a lower compression than normal since they take e85.

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 105 octane.

It seems counterintuitive that E85 has a higher octane rating but when you use it in a flex-fuel vehicle the output goes down along with the mileage. :knockout:

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.
