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.
I've never understood how people can say things like this with a straight face. You've just rationalized (in your head) how same peak HP, lower torque is a better engine.
