    You'd probably want the Bastion 6.5, but why would you do that when you can get the same power (or more) from what is most likely a 4.0 DOHC flatplane V8? Seems like it would be too heavy, plus a boat anchor like that might not even fit

    Torque. Though, in that case a Gavril 6.0 or electric motor would be better.

    It doesn't need it. :cool::p

    An American Supercar with the Bruckell 6.5 would be ace though! ;)

    You don't need torque when you have horsepower, high RPM and the right gearing. Might be slower off the line but it'll catch up once the engine gets up to speed. The launch will also be more manageable since you won't immediately do a wheelie or break the tires loose. Might be worth making a video to prove this someday!

    In a drag race, you aren't likely to ever hit top speed as you're only going an eighth or a quarter mile. Acceleration is by far the most important factor. This is why massive V8s, deisels, and electric motors are the weapons of choice for drag racers.

    Edit: don't forget that LBFT is also part of the horsepower equation. Most drag spec big blocks are hitting over 800hp without nitrous.

    I wouldn't be surprised to see a V8 swap. People do swap TT LS engines into Lamborghini's and the like once in awhile, and the game really needs more engine swaps. I would expect to see the Gavril V8 over the Bruckell V8 just for packaging reasons.

    That's why you need the right gearing
