Higher rpm -> more friction/heat losses -> less efficiency.

CSL hp/rpm*l = 360/(7900*3.246) = 0.01404

Agreed.



Better efficiency at peak rpms doesn't mean higher torque/power at the same rpms. Extra 354cc should give GT3 an edge.

I didn't forgot. I said "with all other things being equal - N/A and civil redline on both".

8000 is hardly civil and we all know that S54 has more problems than BMW engine should have.

Downside: space.
Means you can, say, pack 3.0-3.2L inline-6 into the bay and get 255-270hp from it.
Or you can pack 3.5-3.7L V6 into the same bay and get 300-330hp.

M3 brakes were done after couple of laps. May be that's the reason why 911 and GT-R use 6/4 piston front/rear brakes instead of 1/1 like M3?
