ap72,please learn the rule of 5252.
perhaps my wording is poor.A bigger camshaft applied to the above dyno sim test would make a significant improvement to the power the engine could make.
In terms I understand though not technical,the peak hp being 2 or more k higher than peak tq rpm will usually indicate higher hp numbers than torque.when you reach 5252 rpm,that is usually the x over spot,or it should have happened by then.There is hp being left on the table somewhere???

a 5500 rpm 327 though perky is no where near what it should do. a 1500 rpm range is too narrow for idael acceleration.In a perfect world you shift at max hp and the transmission drops the rpm to max torque rpm.not many transmissions drop 1500 rpms between shifts.
I wont post a detailed explanation like Bogie,that guy does a much better job of explaining the details
