Remember torque is what accelerates the vehicle...not horsepower.


hmmm...I thought (could be wrong) that if a motor made peek horsepower @ 6200 you should shift it past the peek hp...500 or so rpm...Torque is what moves the car, horsepower determines how fast the work is accomplished...cause if what your saying was true diesel powered vehicles would be the fastest cars on the planet...lol
