Ok, I think they made a mistake with the article...they say 280 lb-ft of torque in one spot, and then everywhere else it says 350 Nm...which is 280 lb-ft or torque. This would make more sense too, I don't see how a 2.3 liter direct injection turbo can be detuned down that far in torque.

So, i think they meant 246 hp / 280 lb-ft of torque...and it sounds as if everything is tuned to deal with all that torque in FWD platform...from LSD, to suspension, to way the torque comes on in the rev range, and finally to the torque output being linked to the angle of the steering wheel and other factors.

This is gonna kick ass...if this is 23K or less...I will have no regret about trading in my SVT!!!
