<HTML> The RPM that a engine is operated at looks to play a role in this formula as well.
For example,the average operating RPM needed to reach,say...200hp/250torque is 2000-2500 in a large displacement engine vs a L6 up around 6500-7000 to reach these hp numbers.
Possibly the Rotational mass or "Force:Darth Vader would like that one" would be exaggerated with the increased RPMs required to reach the identical HP #s.
Its a trade off of some sorts I guess...Thanks for the input.

P.S. I own both large and small displacement Zs....I can't "feel" the difference of "forces" that some speak of here...Its my opinion that the increased engine speed required of smaller displacements will and do offset the heavier static rotational masses of larger engines.
Make any sense at all???</HTML>
