Whenever I hear "165hp" I think of the 2.5RS, whenever I hear "one point eight" I think of the 1.8T, I hear "227" in any context, and I immediately think of WRX, etc.
ANyone else, or am I a nutcase?

87 - the stock hp of the flathead 6 in my '51 Ford pickup
(however, once the diesel is all done, the hp / torque will be around 200 / 350. http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif

Like someone mentioned, 333 reminds me of the M3.
553 reminds me of the V10 TDI Touareg too, I think that's it's torque in lb-ft.

and some reviews say it's 330 hp. either one makes me think of M3. that's alot of horsepower out of a six cylinder!

And those numbers are matched exactly by the 96-98 Cobra and 99/01 Cobra.

I never liked how it took the Cobra versions to match the power of the V8 F-bodies. The GT versions should've been matching the GM cars. But with sales volumes the way they were, I guess there was no motivation for that.

Bah, that's turbocharged. Cool, but not as interesting to me.
