250 HO 250 HP

what is the difference between both motors? Is the HO a more powerful and expensive than its HP?

The 250 HO is a larger engine block 3.4L than the 3.3L regular 250

 

The 250 HO is tuned for maximum performance and has more torque and hp than the regular model

I am confused that the HO block is a 3.4 liter. The specs says they are identical

I'm sorry but you did not specify that you were inquiring about the new G2 engines. My response was for the G1 E-TECs that have been around for a decade.

 

For the G2 the difference is in the EMM firmware for better acceleration and top end power plus more engine protection for high rpm usage.

Can the standard 250 G2 be upgraded to HO performance via programming by dealer?
