All the power of a worn out 22R-E with the mileage of a battle tank. But, yeah, normally even though the HP number on a L05 might be close to that of a supercharged 3.4L, it ain't the same.

"Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty. Nobody is able to achieve this completely, but the striving for such achievement is in itself a part of the liberation and a foundation for inner security. " --Albert Einstein
