Why go to a 2.3 vs a 2.0 if your building the engine any way ? here is why

Say your making 150 pound foot of TQ with the 2.0 , so 150 devided by 2.0 = 75 , 75 x 2.3 = 172.00 thats a gain of 22 pound foot of TQ , there is nothing you can buy that would add that 20-22 pound foot of tq to a 2.0 engine

Everyone gets cought up in the HP # , its the TQ you want to be building

HP gets you to the track , TQ gets you down the track
