Can anyone explain how the torque figures are so close on the 2.5T and T5
engines (236 vs 243), while the horsepower numbers are so different (208 vs
247)?

2.5T T5 HP 208 @ 5,000 rpm 247 @ 5,200 rpm Torque 236 @ 1,500 - 4,500 rpm 243 @ 2,400 - 5,200 rpm

If HP and torque are related by the formula Horsepower = torque

What are the driving and/or performance implications of having similar torque but different HP ratings? Is there any way of telling how much torque the T5 would have at 1,500 RPM?

Thanks in advance......
