New HP/TQ figures

It occurred to me after reading about the new Subaru H4 engine and reading all of the complaints about how it has the same hp and only 4lb's of extra torque, that that doesn't tell the entire story.

This engine now has DOHC, a slight bump in CR, variable valve timing and lighter internals. Sure the peak hp and tq might be the same but I'm sure they have to be up everywhere else, which brings me to my point...

Manufacturers should/should have to publish not just peak power but also, for instance, idle power, 50% to red line and peak. Or 1/3 to red line, 2/3 and peak power.

I don't care if my has 100hp or 800hp, I care how fast it goes from 0-60mph and how fast it gets through the 1/4 mile.

Thoughts?

I wasn't sure if I should have put this in off topic or not, it's somewhat technical, feel free to move.

As an example, only showing peak power numbers would be like only showing customers the Highway mpg estimates.
