our 3.6L Cadillac V6, incredibly smooth idle, and will really move out when the throttle is pushed, believe it is rated at 310 HP.
Best engine I have owned was the 301.59 CID (302) offered in the 1967 to 1969 Z/28 camaro's. I had a clone (was an SS Car), with a fully built 302. Forged everything, Balanced, 2.02 heads, 13.5 to 1 CR. 4.0 inch bore, 3.0 inch stroke. With extra springs between the bottom of the heads to the solid roller lifter body (rev kit), that engine would pull Hard to 9500 rpm. I've seen 11,000 on the tack when I missed a gear, and it still held together. Now, that doesn't hold a candle to a REAL F1 engine that runs to 18 or 19K all race long.
