WOW! That seems really low compared to the other engines. I think the diesel was in the 65-80 lb-ft range for the mains.

Is that beacuase of the lower compression? (9:1 vs. 22:1)

well it is a smaller engine. even though that diesel engine will only rev to 2k rpm, this thing will rev to 7k, maybe more if you balance the crank right ;-)
