Re: S6 vs. Volvo 850 Turbo R (was Re: ipd)

   But isn't the max torque on the 20v turbo engines achieved with some
   sort of loading up of the engine to get it at 1950rpm? It sure doesn't
   feel like 227ft. lbs. at 1950 when I accelerate from a dead stop.

Right -- that "constant" torque everyone blathers about is only good when
you're measuring from 5000rpm to 2000rpm; going the other way still takes
a coupla seconds to build the boost up at 2000rpm.
