Sure it is - no-one in the engineering fraternity is that impressed by e.g. 382 bhp from a 5.7l engine. It's just more of the same. But e.g. 321 bulletproof bhp from a 3.2l engine implies considerable engineering talent. (343 bhp from the same capacity appears to be the limit of that talent, though ).
