I was reading the November Car and Driver and they have an update on the 2004
Honda S2000.  Along with various chassis changes, tire changes, etc., Honda
modified the engine.      The engine has the same 240 HP but now has increased
torque of 162 lb/ft versus the old 153 lb/ft.  Hmmm,  interesting!  The
changes to the engine were to increase torque not horsepower.   Fascinating!
Now, the car has quicker 30 to 50mph and 50 - 70mph times.  From 9.9 sec. to
8.8 and 9.4 to 7.9 sec.  Positively scintillating!  Looks like Honda wants
more torque for the S2000.
