I'm reading an article in the R forum and saw this chart. Look at the torque.<br> <IMG SRC="http://www.swededemon.com/images/news/newsitems/r/avtest.jpg" BORDER="0"><p>Original article is here: <A HREF="http://www.swededemon.com/v70rhtml/enough.html" TARGET="_blank">http://www.swededemon.com/v70rhtml/enough.html</A><br>It talks about how the R is not producing its advertised power.

At quick glance I have to say that some of those differences are within the acceptable margin of error for measurement.

Re: (quick)

nice stats if true, ever had a stuck up R person try to downgrade your S40/V50 T5? I'd refer to this chart, and say I might not need the BSR stage 3 to beat you, maybe just the K+N filter will do. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/tongue.gif" BORDER="0">

That's not far off, stock rating is 236 and no two dynos measure the same.<p>Tom.
