Vegas 24.1 GVWR = 14,500 lb
Hurricane 29M GVWR = 18,000
Simple math:
Vegas 24.1 has 47 lb per hp
Hurricane has 56 lb per hp
Vegas 24.1 has 34 lb per ft-lb of torque
Hurricane has 39 lb per ft-lb of torque.
So Vegas seems to come out ahead a bit on available power.

I have a friend that does a lot of car racing. He had my F53 “tuned” and it now has 375 hp with 530 ft-lb. I would think you could do the same with the E450. I have no idea what he did but all the crazy transmission shifting stopped and it has a crap load more power.
