HP? Mine had a steeper increase in HP to redline than his.
Torque? Tim and I made the same exact losses percentage-wise from our MAX to redline 11%. And I had much more time to drop than he did. I peak at 4100rpm, he peaks at 5400rpm. So I do a much better job of holding torque longer once I make it.
Artie is way down from his peaks. I guess my BEGi intake and Tim's custom intake manifold
really remove a lot of the restriction you see with the stock/gutted variations that Artie runs. So maybe that is your answer, Tim's custom intake manifold.
Tim max: 234 redline: 208 dropped: 26ftlbs or 11%
Paul max: 260 redline: 231 dropped: 29ftlbs or 11%
Artie G max: 262 redline: 197 dropped: 65ftlbs or ~25%
Artie S max: 262 redline: 182 dropped 80ftlbs or 30%
If I am way off on what you mean by "so efficient up top" please school me.
