Re: 20V Vs 10V

  The problem with the 20V is that "all those horsepower" come at
  a rather high RPM and are peaky. The old 10-valver has much
  lower peak HP but has a much broader, more generous turque
  curve, basically more torque at usable RPM. Since it's torque
  that accelerate the car the ol' 10V setups can hold their own
  pretty well. Now add forced induction to the flow capabilities of
  the 20V to overcome the lack of midrange and things are
  VERY different!
