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.  

The car has increased displacement, 2200cc vs. 2000cc...I guess S2200 would 
have been too confusing. The numbers are reflective of horsepower under the 
curve, with more hp being delivered at lower rpms as a result of greater 
capacity, revision to VTEC and other cam timing related 
events...evidently...I'm still 
trying to figure out how to effectively tune a Holley...
