Hp or Torque??

It might sound simplistic but i really dont know, i hear all the time
" i want 400 hp"
Or i make it, but no one ever says what the torque is. Isnt that
whats moving these 7000 pound beasts? So i guess my question is
at 400 hp about how much torque is that? ??

Wow, i had no idea it'd be that high. So then 400hp would be
a screaming beast huh? I think id be happy with maybe 600-650
torque. Can i get there with factory injectors, ww2, chip/tuner and
exhaust? Thx

Factory injectors are only good for cores to get something bigger

Intake, exhaust, Stage 1's, good hpop, ww2 in stock turbo and tune it, you will have all the power you are looking for

HP = (Torque * RPM)/5232, so you can see the horsepower will vary with the torque and engine speed. You can get the same HP with less torque at higher engine speed as you can with greater torque at lower engine speed. It kind of depends on what your application is (which for a truck is generally more torque at lower engine speed). Cheers!
