MAterials technology for street engines hasn't changed radically in at least that long. Sure you could build more revs, but it will cost. Would be much easier in a flat plane crank, the cross plane like this makes it even more difficult.

...but SRT post?

Although I see your "greater point" - in simply a V8 setup (versus the 3.0).

Fine I'll stop with the SRT lol

I'm just saying my V8 and the 5.2 V8 are totally different. Of course mine can't rev as high

It would be nice to have one these puppies in a ranger. I bet this v6 would not be slow.
