Not necessarily. stroker (377, 383 for example) small blocks are entirely, reliably capable of fat flat torque curves. Take into cosideration wieght savings and "revability". Imagine a couple of 400hp/450 ft. lb small blocks more than willing to buzz 6K in a 7300 lb. 35'Originally Posted by SLOWOUTBOARD
There is more know how out there in terms of making reliable power/torque and sustained high RPM from a small block than any other format.
