The reason for the power/torque decrease on the 7AFE is emissions related... and they did decrease a bit... although 134 ftlbs is an exaggerated number (110-115 ft lbs is about right)... and the max torque does peak in the 2500-2800 rpms range, depending on who you're asking.Chris Corolla S said:Cool I have a link that says stuff too, who knows what it is
This has an AE102 4a-fe with a TQ Peak at 3,000 RPMs:
This one has the 7a-fe at 134 ft-lbs of Tq
But this one supports the 2,800 RPM claim for the 7a-fe:
To get back on topic the above link also shows that the 4a-f has peak HP at 6,000 RPMS (90HP @ 6,000, 95lb-ft @3,600) so it should be screaming at 5,000 RPMs not slowing down.
