comment Torque curve on modern turbo-charged petrol engines
Haha yes, that's been covered in the comments. kW and Nm will cross at 9549, but this is also assuming that they are graphed against matched y-axes (see the BMW 335i graph in an answer, it's in hp and ft. lbs. but graphed against variant axes).

No worries, here's a good article on it brighthubengineering.com/machine-design/… and an even better video youtube.com/watch?v=fgLNO3ThGD4 to brush up!

comment Torque curve on modern turbo-charged petrol engines
At 5252 Drehzahl (RPM), it looks like about 550 Nm (405 ft. lbs), and 298 Kw (399 hp), which is fairly close. power (in hp) = torque (in ft. lbs) * RPM / 5252. power (in kW) = torque (in Nm) * RPM / 9549.

@Paulster2 the horsepower and torque curves will only cross at 5252 if they are expressed in the right units relative to each other (W and Nm, or hp and ft. lbs) and also if the units are the same on the Y axis. On this answer's graph, and the OP's, note that the hp and torque are graphed against different y-axes. It you note, 5252 is roughly halfway between the 4900 and 5600 lines, which reads ~300hp and ~300 ft. lbs., without 'crossing'.
