Re: T3 Compares With Lamborghini

Reading my newly acquired Wheels magazine I was interseted to see the explanation that the Lambo (6.0 litre V12) was pumping out 550NM of torque at just over 2000rpm.
Went babk to the article on T3 and found out that the 5.6 litre aussie engine (well it's mostly our innards in their) was producing 420 - 430NM of torque if you look at the torque curve on their graph. Now that compares favourably to Lambo's finest.
Be proud Tickford!! Keep up the great work.
oooohh yeah very powerful machine that 5.6L windsor. I envy the people who have that engine, including Scooby Pete's even though his needs a slight tuneup. :p :p
