they do have good torque, i think 4 1/8 in bore and 3 3/4 stroke vs the 3.48 stroke for the 350 and 305.

they have siamised bores in the middle so steam holes are drilled in the block and heads for better cooling, in slightly over stock forms (mild cam and compression) they run very well and have good longevity, while no v8 has the low end like a straight 6 it will run out across the rpm range way better than the 292 you have used before.
