HP is a static product of a normally aspirated engine in most cases... keep the air coming in and going out - and its going to be there, PROPORTIONAL to torque. TORQUE, brake control, manageability, and cornering speed are where it's at, if we're talking performance - and if we're talking street performance - its all this without adding to the cop-attention factor.
Yea I do agree with most but not with torque, I don't agree that either is less or more important. Torque is simply low end hp!! A lambo or F430 Farrari have very little torque just like the M3, but lots of hp.
