Yes, and a 1.2L NA Ducati V-twin produces 180bhp, so whats your point? Forced induction motors will always produce more torque than a similar horsepower NA engine. And if you're going to replace V8's, then you need torque. 170,000rpm is not that amazing for a turbo joe, in fact its pretty standard.

170,000 rpm 12psi turbo that can last 150,000 kms? that is what sets this engine apart from the others, if they put 30psi into this engine would it be any better engineered? hell no, in my opinion it would be worse.

This is a great engine. Other company V6s might make as much power with less displacement but this will make more torque which is important to the jobs the cars with the engine will carry out.

Finally, Ford got their feet on the ground. That's way better than the humongous and shabby 4.0 L V6 that the mustang has. Only 210hp......

Well, it's American, but not quite leadership. Audi's 3.0 liter TFSI twin-turbo V6 has 330 horsepower. Quite close to the 355 bhp of this 3.5 liter out of only 3.0 liters...

That just means Audi's motor is working a little harder for its money. When you factor in driveline losses and build tolerances 20HP is negligible either way. Oh, and Audi uses a supercharger.

Nissan can get 300+hp on their 3.5 and 3.7 liter naturally aspirated engines. But none of them can produce 350 ft-lb of torque. Just remember the EcoBoost V6 will also replace the V8 engines in some large models like SUVs, so torque is also important.

i don't understand how it's possible to get 292 bhp from a 4.6 litre V8... that's absolutely shocking. Mercedes gets 292 bhp from a 3.5 litre V6! even this engine isn't really all that amazing... Audi's 3.0 litre supercharged engine gets similar figures. i *suppose* it's a step in the right direction tho...
