Those are some great power figures, especially that torque number with the RPM is at.
i dunno 4,500 is still a high figure IMO. You're really going to need to step on it to explout the maximum, for street driving I've always found that absurd. in day to Day operation you need the torque lower down the band. Its far more useful for walking out of the hole than kicking in at 4,500 RPM drag racing nan in her Twingo...

It's supercharged though so usually those operate at the lower revs for more responsiveness. What we need is the shape of the torque curve to get a better idea rather than a peak torque figure.

This is true.

I'm also interested in seeing what it would look like on some dyno graph. Ideally I want a good amount of power in the lower range, since it is going to be mostly street driven, with my best efforts to keep it within the speed limit :D
