    im in a lil debate over turbos. ive always thought a turbo adds much more HP then torque. i know it adds torque (cuz the added HP needs increased torque) but the torque would be relative to the HP would it not?
    i mean if you had 500hp with no method of spinning the tires... uh yah...

    im not sure i worded this correctly but meh i hope you understand.

    hp is a function of torqe and rpms.

    if you don't change the rpms, the torque must change.

    .......(torque X rpm)
    hp= -----------------
    ........ 5250

    yea, there is no way to measure horsepower. what we can measure is rotating force (torque) of a motor. therefor, horsepower is dependent on torque.
