27K for over a 1,000hp and just about as much torque is a steal. What I take issue with is the forgotten legacy engines when it comes to Direct Connection parts... There are tens of thousands of these engines in every muscle car, drag car, pickup..... If you think there isn't a market for race parts for the older engines, you would be 100% incorrect. Lastly, I would love to see the sales stats on those 6cyl turbo motors, I would wager the V-8 offerings outsell it 100 to 1. Stellantis: you better keep that Hemi tooling around when this inline stuff fails, and will fail horribly.

Ford can offer a Whipple 3.0l Supercharger with warranty and Carb cert, and Mopar or DC still call their superchargers offering for Off-road use only.
Is it difficult for Mopar or DC to Carb certify their superchargers and stage kits, while Ford can do it every year?

Wonder if DC will offer carb legal turbo upgrades for the Hurricane platform from Garrett because they do offer those for Ecoboost cars. I do wonder what Direct Connection will be offering for the upcoming cars

I do believe Mopar and now DC would love to have any excuse not to offer tuning kits, and I do believe Ford has positioned itself as a better platform when it comes to engines modifications
