German term or phrase: allerdings wirkt der Direkteinspritzer beim Ausdrehen oft angestrengt, obwohl die flotten Fahrleistungen das widerlegen
Yet, the direct fuel injection often works intensive while turning it off, although the quick road performances disprove this.

I think this is not the proper translation for the German sentence:

Allerdings wirkt der Direkteinspritzer beim Ausdrehen oft angestrengt, obwohl die flotten Fahrleistungen das widerlegen.

Whole sentence reconsidered, see below
Explanation:
Although the d.f.i. (car) appears sluggish when revved up this doesn't show in the road performance.
Direkteinspritzer here is a car with d.f.i., not just the injection system. Regards.

neutral  casper: hochdrehen = to rev up. The source text contains "Ausdrehen", not hochdrehen//Oh, I didn't know that. One is always learning :-) Thanks, hazmatgerman

  -> Ausdrehen ist Umgangssprache für "die Drehzahl bis zum Ende des roten Bereichs hochjagen". Umgangssprache gibt es auch in D. Grüße.//Sampat: Kind Regards.

agree  Ken Cox: 'ausdrehen' apparently means revving the engine to its limit, even if the dicos haven't realised this yet. Maybe it originated as a translation of 'wind out' (the engine or tach). One small quibble: I'd say 'seems to be short of breath at high revs'

  -> Danke; es war nur schnell hingeschrieben, ein ganzer Satz soll ja nicht übersetzt werden, aber damit es klar wird. Ihre Variante klingt besser. Danke und Grüße.
