yes here we go again.
There's no torque vs. HP, and that's it.
It's actually the same thing in the end.
The higher the max torque is reached the higher the HP will get and then it doesn't matter if you have 210 reached at 4500rpm instead of 206 reached at 5000rpm, the 206 is still more powerful.
It is the HP that makes a car fast, so torque is just a different measurement of the power. It's the optimal working conditions for the engine(when it reaches max torque).
In our Legend engines with normal fuel injection you can't have one without the other. What makes turbo cars or VTEC cars quicker is because they reaches the max torque at lower rpm without loosing the max HP, since the max HP is still reached at higher rpm which gives a wider powerband. But when talking about Legends there's no discussion.
