It has the same 350 lb/ft so they must have shifted the torque towards lower RPM.

I noticed that the torque was the same also. So why the HP difference?  They did say different turbo and cylinder head from the old Ecoboost Mustang, so why not more HP than the Focus?

Because if peak torque stays the same but you move the torque lower in the RPM band it lowers peak HP (simple math).

Got it.

HP= Torque X RPM / 5252

319.87 = 350 X 4800 / 5252

349.86 = 350 X 5250 / 5252

Bingo.  That’s also why diesels usually have huge torque numbers but lower HP.
