how good is Falcon ECOLPI?

I recently borrowed an FG Falcon ute with the liquid injection engine. It was in good condition, hadn't run up a lot of km, like most LPG utes.
I was astonished how powerful it was - better than the petrol Barra. Supposedly these have similar maximum power. I heard that Orbital Engine Co got a lot more out of these, but Ford crippled it.
I suspect that Ford clipped the torque at 400 Nm, so you are getting maximum torque over wide RPM range. What a shame these things are extinct!
Has anybody seen a torque curve for this engine? I can only find one from a tuner workshop after it was hot-chipped it to get an extra 20 kW, and another in a catalogue, which seems to be a synthetic curve created by some simulation software.
