what sux is that this s55 will have ~100+ lb-ft more of torque, yet produce the same power ~415hp as the s65. What this means to me is that the boost is going to cascade down dramatically after 6K rpm (probably for engine reliability). It also means this engine is going to be rev-limited, in all likelihood to <7500 rpm.

hopefully, they make up for the less rowdy engine with the weight-loss and suspension changes they keep talking about.
