The S62 also produces about 90% of its torque at about 1700RPM. That's the best part about that engine. That often gets over looked. The delta on the S62 is much larger than an S65. Thus far the S62 is far more popular for racing applications. The Dinan version of that engine is race trim is fantastic. There are also a number of companies that use it in off road racing as well. In the end, both engines are great in their own ways.
