That is a dyno from a 300+hp Focus RS... doesn't rove my statement false. Compare the torque curve of a 230hp s/c'd 2.0 with that of a 230hp t/c'd 2.0.. and the s/c'd car will have a more linear torqu curve. Personally I wouldn't want more than about 250p in my SE, I don't want to be burning through tires and clutches on a regular basis. My CRX was more fun to drive with 40% moe power than stock than with 200% more power.
