Thank the gods. I've grown tired of explaining why they won't turbo it. Ah well. Carry on!

Enjoying watching people seriously debate a potential horsepower increase equivalent to the muscle contractions the average person uses to squeeze out their morning deuce. Bill Clinton's definition of "is" thinks you are splitting hairs.

Is that 5hp from a new engine? And is it automatic?

A horsepower difference between the automatic and manual versions (with the auto having less) is nothing new. This has been going on for as long as I can remember and probably before I was born. Back in the day it usually came down to cam timing (among other things), and was a lot more than a 5HP difference.
