to help answer your question, what gear ratio are you running? if your churnning 5500 rpm at 90 your probably running a 4:11 gear or around there in my opinion. being a big block 396 its going to be more of a torque engine anyway. but any engine can be tweaked for top end or low torque. i know you said you wanted to run with imports but i would put money on it that your 396 chevelle could beat about any import from a dead stop. i myself like low end torque over a high top end. just my opinion
