I had a 2001 39Z with 300HP. In my opinion, it was under powered - it could barely get out of it's own way. Put ANYTHING behind it to tow and it was a real pig. And don't get me started about the marginal cooling capability of the radiator setup...
I'm sure there are going to be plenty of 275HP coach owners who disagree with me.
All that being said, it did get me everywhere I wanted to go - eventually
