pushrod motors are a lot more common for these sort of applications (hotrodding) so there are a lot more speed parts available for relatively cheaply... not too many OHC v8's out there, (are there any?) and not too many of us (speaking for the board in general) who want to be running 4- or 6-bangers. i think it's a matter of taste and availability more than technical superiority, especially since there are so few direct comparisons.
