I think he was just implying since he's force fed (with a supercharger) and not N/A he has the extra torque (over similar size non force fed four bangers) to get up that hill with more ease.

205 torque still isn't that great....

i've gone from a stop to moving up a hill, starting in 2nd gear. i didn't mean too... but once i started i was like "oh wait... oops", but kept it in 2nd because it was around a construction vehicle and i didn't want to go that fast anyway...

it wasn't the steepest of hills... maybe 15-20 degrees or so.

and i've got only 135lb-ft of torque... and i deffinately lack in low-end torque...

i need an ubercharger.

For this class it's great. Remember it's in an under 3000lb sport compact.

A very sexy car. I had the opportunity to test drive one, and I loved it. Definitely on my "Car to buy after college" list.

There was never a 4 cylinder Camaro, and certainly not a V4. Maybe you're thinking of the Fox Body Mustangs, not F-body Camaros.

Once again, Boobmba opens his mouth and inserts his foot. Did you forget about the 2.5 Iron Duke four cylinder installed in the early ('82-'85?) third generation F-bodies, or did you just shoot off your ignorant pie hole again without even knowing about them?
