    You can check with some of the local shops, especially those that cater to commercial trucks, or you can get an oil sample kit online to send in.

    While the testing procedures and the total power output may be different, the point at which it reaches it's full torque remains the same though. The amount of power is not the issue, it is the...

    Ok. I'll bite. Which incarnation of the 327 was the data pulled from? From what I read recently, to bone up on the info, the stock 327 with the Rochester 4bbl reached max torque at 2800 rpm. Since...

    That's true, but still the fact remains, the small blocks of days gone by generated their max torque at substantially lower RPM than those of today. Reread the article. 90% of max torque is...

    These engines do meet the needs of most consumers, but that is not a very good standard to judge things. The OEM's are technically in an "arms race" with each other, but the problem is, they are not...

    Yeah, that nasty E85 comment was made out of pure sarcasm. I regularly use the stuff in my pickup when the price variable makes it cost effective to do so.
