Figured I'd add some more info to this..
Your TQ peak will come when your engine is operating at maximum VE (Volumetric Efficency).VE is how much air and fuel is burned in the combustion chamber Vs. Combustion chamber size i.e 2 liters in our case.Hondas,with their excellant head design and cam events actually have a VE above 100% at TQ peak proving that high redlines are NOT a bad thing.Horsepower being a mathematical formula of Tq @ X RPM is just another way of equating how well your engine is breathing at higher RPM's.If you had an enginethat made the same TQ at every RPM from 0-10,000 then your HP would climb in a diagonal incline proportional to RPM.As to what is more important peak TQ @ high RPM Vs. peak TQ @ median RPM that is another thread all by itself.
im pretty sure ive mentioned that, but anyway, my guess is that those dyno sheets use different scales for HP and torque. look carefully, sometimes theres a scale on the left side for one, and another on the rightside for the other.I just wanted to point out that it appears noone mentioned that @ 5252 Rpms Hp will always be higher than Tq and below it Tq will always be higher.I've personally seen some fishy dyno sheets on here before(not this thread but on 8thcivic).If the meeting point of Tq and Hp is above or below 5252 by a large amount 500 rpms or more then that dyno sheet(be it chassis or engine dyno)is suspect.
Torque is the cross product of the radius (or arm) and the force applied. A cross product is the product of a scalar, a vector, and the sine of the smallest positive angle between them which returns a vector. You can apply an infinite force at an incident angle whose sine is 0 and generate no torque...thus why you can't fire a cylinder at TDC.Torque is a force that tends to cause a rotation. A force applied at a non-zero distance from an object's centre will tend to rotate the object.
Mathematically, work is a force times a distance, and has units such as foot-pounds or Newton-metres. The direction of force (or at least a component of it) must match the direction of motion for the force to be considered to be doing work.
