Do some research, I think it was Larry Torres who ran an Opel GT and Larry Kopp who ran a king pin Corvette. Either way they both ran small journal small blocks around 287 cu in and over 11,000 rpm in the 70's.
Small journal means less heat, less weight and more rpm. Yeah maybe the metalurgy wasn't as good then but maybe not, everybody wants a pre '64 Winchester because they are beter finished and SHOOT.
