I read about it last week. 300lb of torque is impressive. I totally hate the look of the car though. Its looks to big and the back is just hidious. I do like the engine though. About time they tried something new. Only problem with a turbo is cool down time required and also Maint costs. I believe a turbo only lasts around 70K miles give or take. I feel bad for all the people who buy this car used. Turbos are not cheap. But I will say that many people are going to be pushing some sick HP with that engine with some mods.
