By nature the S14 is a peaky engine, you can see that even on the stock plots that it is like it from the factory.
But you don't feel it driving the car, unless your below 2k and it feesl like you might as well jump out and give it a push to help :P . You can drive around it easily enough,. From 3k you can it really starting to pick up. Hit 5k and it's on cam and just flies.
The dip a about 5k you can't feel at all.
If your pushing on anyway with the dogleg box that is fitted to the euro ones, the car will never be that low in the revs anyway. It will only drop 750-1k rpm on a change so the car will never drop below 6250 rpm which is right where the peak torque and power is. Great for track driving which is what the car is about.
It's fine to drive about, but it doesn't like to chug along in traffic, you know where you have a car in first gear and let it drive along on idle, well it surges when it tries to do that, but if I wanted to drive in traffic I'd have got a nice sensible car
So when you consider that, the plots look pretty sweet
