Cool. Thanks for the post. I don't remember the source we obtained this information from but this looks like what we saw a week ago or so. I don't think there is anything to complain about from any of these three engines

Some of these numbers were released during the recent IDL and CamaroScotty posted them in his summary of the IDL. Not sure if the torque numbers were included in that though. Thanks for posting them.

I hadn't seen the torque figures. Thanks. I'm surprised at the L99's torque...>hp. Nice!

I'm very happy with the L99 right now. All three engines are very impressive competitors.

I can't wait to get a supercharger (root/screw type) on this thing .. The additional low end will just make it that much more fun.

Having more torque than power is always nice to see
