And if you want torque, you have to remember that focus's are fwd so that means instead tire spin.
Funny thing is you need torque and rpm to have horsepower. Sort of like saying I lost torque but gained hp, no the torque just moved up in the rpm band and made more hp. Turbochargers make a ton of torque everywhere and can result in tons of wheelspin, but everyone loves them.
