On the Mustang chassis dyno the Torino makes its baseline pull with the factory air cleaner housing in place. The car registered 99 hp and 156 lb-ft of torque. The torque curve was flat from 2,000 rpm and it began to drop off at 3,200. As we noted earlier, the cam nosed over at 4,200 rpm at right around 100 horsepower. We would have guessed this car at 120 hp on a Dyno Jet so it seems the 20 percent drop in readings, as predicted by the Spectre technicians for the Mustang dyno, was in the ballpark.
