Agreed challenge is an under statement...........10HP would be asking for a 20% increase.............extremely hard to do without very serious compromises..............some aftermarket exhaust cause a HP and or torque lose, but most do not admit it..............add the required no reduction in MPG makes this a near impossible feat.

Would be shame to destroy the torque curve on the stock NC trying to get 5 HP.
