Like dug-e-fresh said... Torque breaks parts... EJ207's have made almost as much power as stock block sti's (soon2bgreat made 507 on c16)... that's powerful enough for a 10 second run with a good transmission (not 6 spd ratios). Soon2b also had much less torque because it was a 2L. Launching with 500ft-lbs instead of 400ft-lbs when you have 500whp can be much more detrimental to drivetrain parts.

Of course I am speaking with regard to drag racing only... where you don't exactly need much torque since you're in the upper RPM anyway.
