I can think of two reasons why really big displacement in a V-8 is challenging.

1) RPM is the cheapest road to HP but the long stroke works against this.

2) Supercharging gives the biggest bang for the buck.

Tall deck with a blower wins until someone brings out a V-12.

What's with the Torque V-12? They haven't been talking much recently.

Man you read my mind! I've been thinking of repowering lately. Looking for around 750hp (28 Pantera with a single) and I've decided on either a blown 540 or an n/a 632.

Torque went belly-up in '03 or '04. There were a couple of buyout rumors and announcements but I don't know if anything materialized. One of them was that Callan was buying them and that Sterling was on board with him as consultants. Great concept, just tough to get folks to buy into it. Nobody wants an orphan motor you can't get parts for.
