I guess I'm overstating when I said down on power. The new Camry and Accord have ~270 HP V6's. They are both rated at 30 mpg hwy. But I'll take an extra 10 mpg over 40 more HP. Like you said... 237 is hardly anemic
237 is better than my WRX puts out stock. I wonder if the HP inflation will ever plateau. I sure wish my WRX got 37mpg rather than 25, so ford seems to know what it's doing with the 4 cylinder turbos these days.
