V , its not like I was trying to limit my builds to that. It is how much they made.
A .85 hp per in NA engine is a hot engine. 1.2 hp per inch NA is not even realistic. It can be done at a premium. That 375hp/327 never made 375 real hp. Some people became dreamers, instead of builders/creators . I do like to read your reciepes.
Peaky power and a flat curve power are diffrent. You may get 400+ hp with a 350 single plane, single carb, big cam. A supercharged 350 with a mild cam is gonna walk it from the line. You will not catch up, off the line is were it is won.
So what increase the stall to 4000 shift a 6000+ and remove all driveability. Could be but thats not my way.
