the shorter stroke of the 350 allows the engine to rev faster as there is less rotational inertia. It also is easier on rods and pistons as velocity is decreased at equal RPMs and also has less side load on the cylinder walls.
Tq is decreased as there are less overall cubes and less mechanical advantage/leverage on the crank centerline..
