Re: LS3 vs 396 BBC

I agree....its the torque.

My best on my old 406" SBC was mid 1.50's in the 60' with the 364" SBE pulling mid 1.50's also....but with the old 406" with the solid roller, 1.65 rockers, Etc, "feels" more powerful, I'm guessing just due to the way it made the power Vs the LS and it's much milder make up ?

Torque curve

68 Camaro~LSx ~all motor
1.54 60'--6.95 @ 98.45 660'--10.96 @ 121.53
