Re: Dart 496 or 540
I don't know man. If it's primarily street, just use less cam to keep the power band on the milder side since HP is a function of torque and RPM. Then enjoy all that torque. The 540 should give you what....at the very minimum 50 lb ft more than the 496? For the same price?
Now this is just me, but I'd go with the biggest I could on the budget for a street car so the torque could be kept as high as possible and then work with the cam to keep the hp in check. Actually, I just went through all that with mine and put a deposit down yesterday.
