Looks good wonder how long stock internals will hold.

Yeah longevity is the only concern I have. By next year these people should have around 15k boosted miles so we can see how they're holding up. I'd like to think though that the engineers knew people would boost them considering they took so many other tuner oriented things into consideration.

That's ideal torque actually. You would want an abundance of torque for drifting. But for everything else, you want it to be usable. The application of the torque in the Honda for example, we all rag on them for being guttless when it comes to torque. But truth be told, the lack thereof in torque allows them to put the HP down around the race track. Limits wheel spin, thus putting all that HP down and maintain a good deal of traction.
