.. Friend of mine who does body work in his home garage had a 1990 454SS pickup and 1989 TPI350 Firebird GTA. He claimed the truck was faster, prolly because it was torquey and fried the tires easily, but he had never actually ran them against each other. We told him the Firebird would get at least a bus length in every gear vs the truck. Even much more in 3rd and 4th. He refused to believe us...

.. Also, a mildly built up 350 will have more torque than a stock 1990 454 once you get above 5000 RPMs...
