Those numbers are estimates but are poor estimates. They estimate 170 tq from 6400 to 6600 rpm... 170 ft. lb. torque at 6400 rpm equals 207 hp at 6400 and at 6600 equals 213 meaning the peak 200 hp at 7000 isn't actually the peak.

Holding tight to see what actual numbers are, I bet they will be better than that.

Also they say they can't fit a turbo in there. Its cause they are doing it wrong. That thing is direct injected meaning they could easily do an idea I've always had for the boxer engine (well, any direct injected engine really)... intake manifold on bottom, turbo manifold on top. Allows for a very short turbo manifold, plenty of room, and since heat rises should keep substantially less heat out of the intake manifold. Oh well...
