I like the paragraph in the article...

"Displacement Increase: The GAA V8 engine already has a 5.402" bore and a 6" stroke, for a displacement of 1,100 cubic inches (18 liters). Any person who finds that the job cannot get done with an engine of this size should find another hobby.

Which brings up the topic of horsepower and torque. Horsepower is calculated as: torque x rpm, divided by 5252. The GAA is just not a high-revving engine, and so the "rpm" part of the equation will always dampen "braggin rights." However, on the street in actual driving, it is "torque" that does the work, and a modernized, streetable GAA is capable of putting out around 1,350 lbs / ft of torque between 2-3000 rpms. Off-idle (i.e. "the light turns green") torque is over 1,000 lbs / ft. The smallest transmission rated to handle this level of torque is the Allison MD-3000 6-spd. If, perchance we were able to get this level of torque past a differential, there are no street tires that can handle the power. Adding dual 4-inch turbos would bring over 2,000 streetable horsepower, all nice and mild -tempered so grandma wouldn't be intimidated by the idle sounds, but there's no way whatsoever to get that sort of low-end power to the pavement. This engine is the hotrodder's dream, the ultimate "no replacement for displacement", but it is also a quagmire in that there's already so much torque that not much further can be done to it, its just not possible to get the power to the ground. Nothing sophisticated, just a big-ol' 1,100 cubic inch gorilla on the streets with his equally big sledge hammer.

In 1945, the GAA engine put out, with all its faults and limitations, 175 hp and 1,000 lbs / ft of torque at 1,000 rpms. It carried this 1,000 lbs (or more) of torque through the usable rpm range, up to 2,800 rpms.

No Replacement For Displacement: One Ford GAA engine is bigger than: (3) 350 Chevys or 360 MoPars. Bigger than 2 1/2 MoPar 426s, (2) Dodge V10 Ram trucks, 6 Toyota Camry V6s, or 8 Volkswagen New Beetle 4s. When parked at a local burger palace on a weekend night with a GAA-powered Ford truck, should the trucker in the next slot mention that his Chebby has a 502 crate motor, the Ford man can respond with, "good deal, and if you had 48 more cubic inches, you'd be half as big as my Ford." End of story.
