    I'm looking to increase maximum engine RPM & HP/"area under the curve"(via tune for 93 vs. OEM 87 octane). The car is a stock 2015 GTPP aside from basic things such as catback CAI. I believe there would be a decent benefit in laptimes at a few of the tracks I run with having another 500-1,000rpm. I've heard the Coyote motors are fairly robust with taking additional RPM, what is the motors weak point (ie: must upgrades?, oil pump ring gear?)?

    Any recommendations for an off the shelf solution? Or is a custom solution basically the only way to go?

    Oil Pump gear would be a very good upgrade reliability wise, if you plan on spinning high RPMs. The only real downside is the installation.
    You will likely encounter additional oil temperature with increased revs, depending on your driving style.

    For tuning, I suggest you talk to Shaun at AED Tuning. He has tuned my race car since 2013. AED is also a forum sponsor and may offer some TMO discount. They have a link in the ads to the lower right of this page.
