Torque on the 94-98 was between 215 & 220, torque is more a function of engine size than hp.

with the 99+ cars hp went up 40-46 hp, but torque only went up 5-10 depending on year.

Breathing increases hp greatly because peak hp is AFTER 5500 RPM where the torque and hp curves meet. Torque, on the other hand requires more in the way of backpressure.

Woe to him who builds his palace by unrighteousness,his upper rooms by injustice,making his countrymen work for nothing...Does it make you a king to have more and more cedar?Did not your father have food and drink?He did what was right and just,so all went well with him. He defended the cause of the poor and needy,and so all went well...But your eyes and your heart are set only on dishonest gain,on shedding innocent blood and on oppression and extortion. Jer 22:13, 15-17
