No kidding, although I hope Audi doesn't hop onto the pushrod bandwagon. 
But I say overall, most Euro cars has equal hp-torque due to OHC design 
(instead of like domestics, in which pushrod engine tend to produce 
humongo torque and bat's fecal pellet worth of hp). Due to that fact, 
it's somewhat safe to use horse for comparisons.
