I understand torque. Peaky HP sux on the street. The broad flat torque curve of a V8 will destroy a peaky 6 cylinder with the same WHP. That is where the turbocharged F6 shines, it behaves more like a V8. If you are building an engine for the 930 4spd you need as large and fat a torque band as possible. The gearing is not close enough for a peaky HP engine.
