Quoting a good friend of mine from the left coast "Its the nature of the beast". Meaning, in this instance, that some engines, probably depending most on the cylinder heads, will be able to go quite a bit farther up the range past peak hp. than others can.

It will vary based on what someone is running. I have seen a cam change do it.

How many people when they dyno their engine make a pull more than a couple of hundred RPM past peak HP to really know what it does?
