English term or phrase: massage out
27 horsepower has been massaged out of the F430's 4.3-liter V-8, bringing output to 510 horses.

No sé si le han quitado o puesto caballos. Como son autos nuevos, deberían haberle puesto.

Explanation:
In this case, "massaged out" is an expression meaning, more or less, lograr/conseguir con esfuerzo. Another way of saying the same idea in English would be "They *managed to* add 27 more horsepower."
