I'm not impressed, just some more over engineered baloney typical of Ford, "let's make it 3 times more complicated than it needs to be, just to show off our engineering".
Well I am impressed, like it or not the new horsepower wars is going to push the technology that you see on your top trim factory sports cars, hell even the daily driver 4 cylinder engines are seeing a lot of new tech. The thing that is most impressive is the relatively low cost to the consumer, it speaks volumes for manufacturing technology.

Ford would not make it more complicated that it had to be for one simple reason- cost. EAch additional part is more cost to them, but when you have a mileage crisis, restrictive epa standards, and a new horsepower war you need to pull out the bag of tricks just to be competitive.

BTW the 2011 Camaro SS has 426hp out of 6.2L...
