From racing experience, I use a 331(.030 over 327) in my modified dirt car. Just as Tom said, we are slower on start's at 4000 till she revs till 7500, And that's with heavy piston(I know It won't last long). Other driver swear by there 383's and 406's and a few like the 358's. I find it easier to keep from buzzing off the tires with less torque but with 6:30 gear it'll pull with any 406 turning 68-7000. Heck, One guy even uses a 4.3 sixer with a 6:70 gear! For street use it's hard to justify the needed rpm of smaller engines but I think it's all in the combination as far as which is better for the intended usage.
