            Technically the modern vehicles, especially the """sporty"""" ones that are just as fast or somehow slower are much more pathetic. Those performances are pretty good for late 90's tire technology.

    I'm tired of pretending that anemic high revving engines are supposed to be desirable. I don't care how much hp a car makes if it's literally gutless and useless everywhere below the redline. I don't want to have to be forced the string the car out just to squeeze a little power out of the redline if it feels like driving a nonvvti honda civic from 1985 everywhere below 7000rpm. Every single day of the week I'll gladly take a big fat stonking ohv engine with a torque curve that looks like a straight line all the way from idle and actually makes it feel like the gas pedal is connected to an engine

            If you want the math, look at volumetric efficiency and air moved per stroke. Revving engines are shit at this and compensate by making their shitty torque at a high rpm so they can stay in a gear for longer and get better multiplication. It's better to have more engine torque and less multiplication and have that everywhere in the rpm band

            Valid take. Love me some fat torquey pushrod V8s and V10s that scream and roar to life. A celebration of life, passion, and soul. An insubordination to the brutality of this world. Beautiful engines.

    If you don't like revving out powerful engines you're probably gay.
    Flat torque curves and low redlines are good if you're commuting or an Amazon delivery driver, I guess. You could even transition to EV if that's your perfect engine characteristic.

      I'm sick of you bastards criticizing sports car engines for not making truck torque numbers. In the grand scheme of things, having double or lopsided torque figures does nothing. I lose braincells everytime I see someone point at a car making 700hp and say "yeah but it makes nothing under 3k rpm" as if the car doesn't cold idle just below that. Like yeah tell me how a car that makes power up to 8k and makes 90% of its torque by 4k rpm is somehow a bad engine. Better yet tell me how 800tq and 350hp is good for a 3k lb car since everyone wants to suck off big blocks that flow poorly while we're at it. Cars don't need crazy torque if they're not overweight, and engines that make better torque than power are just unoptimized for making power period. If the numbers are uneven that means there's always room for improvement. Even the biggest performance big blocks are capable of singing to 8k and make their peak power near there. Its better to make more power as you accelerate than to have power taper of as you accelerate. Applications where torque is more dynamic and pronounced are not meant for performance and you're a moron for applauding it in performance applications. Fast cars win races. They don't tow logs

        Thanks for posting the graph. Seeing the torque that low on the LT6 is actually really fuggin impressive. Things gonna be a beast and the yurocucks have to be shaking in their boots.

          Europeans just don't have the sauce I guess. The only concern I have with the lt6 is the two piece block design but I doubt c8 corvette owners are fretting about dropping $10k on an engine resealing and europe already has similar designs anyway. It'd be cool if gm made a 4 cylinder out of the architecture though. 300+ na 2.3l would be a beast of a crate motor
