uhhmm K series engines are torqueyer (sp??) and make power much lower in the rpm band, which makes for a better driving all around car......you dont have to wring it out to 8500 rpm to get to the meat of the curve....you just have to wring it out to 5000 LOL

not like a modded L67 that you have to rev it all the way up to 2000 rpm before you get 300+ lbs tq (missing my Regal motor....just wish it was attached to a manny tranny)

same old honda - push the hp numbers up, hope they don't look at (or understand, more likely) the torque numbers.

*sigh*

the buying public will eat it up though.
