That's the point I try to bring up when cool1rim says he's never had a 1.5T beat him. The 1.5T torque curve alone means a hugely better low end and there's much more hp on top then the 2.0.No part of any of that is true. You've been spouting this nonsense for over a year now.
The 1.5T produces more power and torque at every part of the rev band than the 2.0. The 2.0 doesn't have usable power below 1k rpm, it is completely and totally gutless until the very end of the rev band and at maximum power it is still below what the 1.5T was doing for almost the entire rev band. The 1.5T will wreck a 2.0 from a start or from a roll 10 out of 10 times. If you ever beat a 1.5T it means it wasn't racing you.
