I have a 444HP 302 and a 305HP V6. I think it's a pretty good analogy.

The V8 has the rumble, ability to snap you back in your seat, and pulls forever.

The 6 is accelerates respectfully, is easy to whip around, and gets 30 MPG.

Sounds like the 2.3T will have about the same HP as the '11+ V6, better torque and better sound. It's probably not gonna snap you back in your seat, but will probably get you closer to the 50/50 weight distro, and let you skip every 4th fill up you'd have with the 5.0.
