FE: is that a trick question? Every engine that has ever existed and ever will, the HP and TQ cross at exactly 5250rpm. And so if he's going 60 at 2000rpm, he'll be going exactly 157.5MPH at 5250 in OD (well, will probably run out of power well before 157mph, but theoretically).

The graphs you were looking at may have had the HP and TQ on different scales, for instance if the top line was 500hp and 400ft/lb.On 2006-05-14 21:43, TorinoStyle2 wrote:

I've seen diesels that cross at much lower speeds than 5252!!
And I've seen a racing rotary engine that its peaks never even crossed.....way above 5252!!
