    Please never again compare horsepower and torque numbers to each other. It is a conceptual mistake to compare them, as they are two distinct characteristics with different UNITS.
    To demonstrate this error in thinking, I could define a new torque unit (aside from Newton-meters or foot-pounds) to be "zorbots," where 1 zorbot equals 123.45 lb-ft. In this case, just about any car would produce "considerably more horsepower than torque."
    And yes, Audi does benefit from Eaton's new four-lobe supercharger. Just go to eaton.com and choose their Automotive division to read the latest news.
