OHC engines HAVE to be revved to take advantage of the engineering costs. They are always attached to small displacement engines, that produce modest HP unless they are zinged to the moon. Look at the tourqe curves on a OHC V8, pathetic. If engineering comes down to more with less, why add more? More in the case of OHC = engineering and manufacturing costs, weight, parts, paresitic drag, physical size, etc.
Wrong again Dave, ever heard of an Allison or Rolls Royce aircraft engine? They were OHC and didn't rev high at all . . . 3000-3200 rpm and they definitely made torque. Where the cam is located doesn't have anything to do with torque.

Thank you very much Mr. Sticks... LOL! As you can see from the smilie, I really mean no harm. I just think after some of the threads that went sour we should loosen up a little bit.

No way man, turbine engines have to few moving parts, dont weigh enough, have to be spun to 100K rpm to make any power and are lame! They best turbine engines have pushrods, guide plates and gear drives, sheesh.


Lol, way to loosen things up man.

The fastest vehicle I have been in besides aircraft was a boat with a single turbine engine, 32' Skater tunnel hull owned by Howard Arneson. 160+ on the water was friggen awsome.

Stalwart, you have sunk to this level to prove me wrong? Wow. Aircraft engines? Provide a link to OHC engine that does all of the following -

Is lighter than a 7.0 litre Z06 engine
Gets better fuel economy than a 7.0 litre Z06 engine
Produces less emmissions then a 7.0 litre Z06 engine
Is physically smaller than a 7.0 litre Z06 engine
Costs less to produce than a 7.0 litre Z06 engine
Is more reliable than a 7.0 litre Z06 engine

I will leave it at that for now. This should keep you running in circles for a couple of years.
