TORQUE is the amount of force the engine can provide. HP is the amount of work it can do.
analogy : torque is like : you can lift a 20 Kg bucket. HP is your stamina that you can lift a 20 Kg bucket 10 times in 1 minute.
i.e. torque is something you feel when your car accelerate. HP is something you talk about during teh tarik.. hehehe.... peace..
HP limit is felt when your engine run out of breath....
the one with the higher torque on wheel at the same velocity...Well~ Let say a diesel car where always have huge torque and less HP VS with a petrol car which normally is has less torque but have more HP. So in this situation which 1 have higher opportunity to win a lap?
Erkkk :hmmmm:Example let us compare supercharged Toyota 1.6 4AGZE vs Honda 1.6 B16A VTEC.
4AGZE power is 168hp at 6400rpm n torque 210nm,
while B16A has 174hp at 7800rpm n torque 150nm.
Looking at hp, B16A is slightly better, but looking at torque, B16A is hopeless,
but during drag race between near stock engine, B16A will win more than 4AGZE, why?
Coz B16A horsepower is better than 4AGZE, so it has more pulling power,
eventhough its torque is very low.
And look closely as its max power rpm, due to its low torque, B16A need to rev much higher to match power on bigger torque engine (refer equation above).
oo~ No wonder I feel more comfortable when uphill compare to B16 la...that is drag race, in a uphill touge car, b16a may not perform well vs a high torque car. so both has pro n con
Genting taxi's are SR20's meh? I always thought they were GA16's... Since when did sentras come with the 2.0 engine here in Msia? Correct me if im wrong.hehehehehe, b16a if powerful 1600cc if compare to most 1600cc.....BUT not the most powerful yet. when a single driver is inside, it can run pretty fast. but if full passenger, try race uphill with genting taxi aka b13 with sr20 and see who win :P
but to be frank, b16a in realife only puts about 120whp.....170hp is the brochure
maybe is the deaftening vtec sound give the uuuumpph to the driver feeling like f1
