If I read the release correctly, Ford cannot legally make this engine from the factory. So they want their customers to finish building their Camaro-fighter themselves.

Neat trick!

What do you mean when you say "legally" cannot build the engine from the factory? 

 

Edit: Nvm, I guess I read a different release than that MT one. I see what you're talking about now. 

 

"The law prohibits the upgrades from being installed prior to the sale of a new car, so if you want the extra horsepower you’ll need to do it after you leave the dealer lot." From the MT Link.

Is this not how much of the 3rd party after market upgrades work thought? I thought to push beyond the basic EPA framework was when you then moved to 3rd party or performance groups who could do what the OEM could not.

Yeah I think a good chunk of it has to do with the EPA fuel economy ratings. It's probably a hell of a lot cheaper to offer the parts and warranty them to those who want it than it is to go through the re-certification process of both engine and fuel economy.

While this a good thing to offer, I foresee a lot of warranty issues down the road, being that they want you to pretty much self serve your car and hopefully know what you're doing.

Not really that heavy on hardware, more on calibrations, tunes and light modding. 

 

But I guess there's OEM support behind it, but seems like something they probably already did for the last-gen with PowerPacks tied to the Boss Models or whatever they calls it.
