Re: S4/91 200: which is faster?

At 1950 you have about 30% more time to fill the cylinders. The PR is lower
and so are the charge temps. There is less backpressure at the exhaust side
so the cylinders can fill more completely. The cam with 0 overlap was
designed for producing torque at the low end.

I've wondered about this......  how is max torque developed at 1950 RPM but
boost is not developed till 2500 RPM? How do they get that high max torque
max/high boost at 1950 RPM?
