what the rev limit is? It doesn't matter. The revs your engine is turning mean absolutely nothing.
What difference does the rev limit make when it's running through a gearbox that changes everything anyway? 170hp is 170hp, regardless of where it makes the power. The gearbox takes care of that.
What makes a car fun is a wide powerband as felt at the wheels. New diesels can provide that.
