Less power (torque)
Less bottom end.....

There is an old saying...."There is no substitute for cubic inches"

Yeah, but then turbos were invented.... and don't forget nitrous!

Sure, a turbo'd big engine will produce more power than the same N/A, but a small engine with a turbo will produce as much as a much larger N/A engine... therefore in some cases there IS a substitute. Pretty much the same iwth nitrous, but those little engines better have strong bottom ends!

If you really want low torque and high hp I would go with a 283 and duel turbos. It'll rev much higher and will definitely help traction.

Poncho brings up an excellent point. A 350 is one of the cheapest engines to build. And while it costs more than a 350 a 383 will cost about the same as a 327 and will make a lot more overall power. Still though nothing like a high winding twin turboed V8

I agree with less tire spin, but not necessarily more top end. The smaller motor might run more RPM before the hp starts to drop, but probably not make more peak hp given the same setup.

Check this out. It is a 350 and a 383 with the exact same parts. The 383 makes more peak hp and more peak torque, but at a lower RPM. I believe the same would occur between a 327 and a 350.
