Because I want my Pantera to have an engine at the level of his so sporty and so aggressive look and I would like to have a 400/450 hp STREET engine to have about 3 kg per horse (or 330 hp / ton). But if it's possible to get 400/450cv with good power at low and medium revs, replacing only the pistons for higher compression ratio, the camshaft and the valve train, the intake manifold and the carburetor, why not?

I've already explained. You are welcome to ask me for clarification if there's anything confusing you.
Yes, you have already explained and I understood, but I like to redo the calculations myself especially if I don't buy a kit but separatly parts

Do you remember the story of the king with no clothes. All the people commented how well adorned the king was. Nobody wanted to be the only person who saw no clothing. I have confidence in myself, I'm not afraid to speak up when there is bad engineering. Or, to express it another way. I have nothing to gain by lying to you, because I don't sell crankshafts.
And that's why your article is very interesting and that I thank you but I like to get deeper into things. (3.85" or 4" crankshafts aren't more expensive than those of 3.75" Wink )
