The Logan should pull that off, if they ever make them.

Sounds like a nice combo.

One problem with this statement is that 281ci 4vs have no low end torque, especially with very aggressive cams, but I guess it could be worse.

Fortunately for us horsepower wins races. Now if they'd just make that new aluminum GT500 block readily available we could build a halfway affordable 6.2L big bore. Torque and cubic inches
