TORQOE ????????

im looking at 200bhp conversion for my s
can u tell me y they all have quite differnent quotes for the torque ratings
is this just another case of the dynos been set up differently
is there other reasons eg like better compolents

here sum examples
minisport 200+ BHP = 165 @ 3800 ish torque
graham goode 207bhp =195 @ 3812 torque
digi tec 207bhp = 183 @ 3500 torque

am i right in thinking the more torque at lower revs is better than just high bhp
thanks

Your assumption is correct for almost everyone. Those kits all use the same size reduction pulley, and all else being equal should have the same dyno readings. Differences are in the ECU remap, intake system variations and exhaust mods. And you are right about different dynos on different days. One of the reasons people like the "feel" of the JCW kit is the nice linear gain all the up the band. There are enough postings on these kits to help you decide which one would suit you best.
