It must be me, but, I find greatest poke at ~2 to 3000rpm, anything above that and the power seems to fall away. E.g, in 3rd gear, up to ~3000 is fine, above that and it's fairly non-impressive. Any thoughts ?

Nothing wrong with out right power, my old mans ZF 2.2 deisel can not pull away from me.

If your talking about torque, what do you expect from 999cc ?.

I get a reasonable shove from 2 - 3.5K.

O blimey yes, it really is amazing. When you compare it to my 948cc A35 van (35bhp) around 1965 it's unbelievable :)

No, up to 3k'ish it's terrific and I rarely go above that. No need to rev the goolies off it :D

not gonna lie to you guys, my ecoboost zetec 100 is the fastest car i've ever owned so far.

it handled a trip to the skate park with 2 mates and 3 bikes strapped across the back with a Halfords bike rack, and it handled a trip to london with a boot loaded with chopped tomatos in cans

i don't know if i could imagine a more willing engine

A35.......good comparison.

If you do want to keep up, you DO need to thrash the goolies off it.

Keep up with who though? ;)

At 3K or less it can burn-off 90% of the "insert expletive here" :D
