Listed as 135 ft-lb at 2500 the crossover point with 159 max on RX8 at 5500 would be well over 4000 RPM.
The 5 rockers/cyl and 3 phases includes motor only for cruise low speed.
Performance equates to conventional 1.8 l. from 1.3 l. and it's about a 6 % gain on mileage (Japanese ) test.

At Announcement in Japan, engineers say they have achieved taking 30% out of cost of system.

What ever your numbers might state, the RX-8 red lines at 9000 rpm and does 0 to 60 in 5.9 seconds, and while I’m hear because I’m going to get sell mine (can’t stand the gas prices anymore) there is no real world driving comparison. Take my word for it… I had the Civic Hybrid for a long test drive and kept it overnight. If not test drive an RX-8 (curves are best with the 50/50 weight distribution) and you will find it to be an awesome experience until you have to fill the tank every 250 to 275 miles. :D
