I don't where the cams start to come in on those motors and/otrr where the top is but...if you're spinning a little faster and starting to come into the performance point in the cam than the v10 does at that cruising speed, it may answer part of the equation in more torque. There are other factors. Air flow, carburation, yadda, yadda, yadda. I only know a cam can be ground to assist in more torque or more top end. A grind in the middle you gives you the best of both worlds if it fits the application.
How's she been doing?
