That means an additional lump of 12lb-ft. of torque at 3600 rpm and 10lb-ft more between 5200-7500 rpm. In terms of horsepower – plus 10 hp more at 5200 rpm and 15 more at 7000 rpm. The end result is a maximum output of 215 bhp and 175lb-ft of torque. These numbers will matter in real life situations and on the track as well.
