Just use a Lightweight powerplant or build something else, because heavy Zuks tend to loose their charm.
on paper, but the real world toruqe curve and driveablity is different. You are't at HP peak that often..

Be honest, drive two Jeeps. One with 2.5 liter (which is 120hp) and one with a 4.2 (110-120hp), which is about 200lbs heavier.

They have the same HP, but there is a world of different in general trail performance.

Honestly, either is a reasonable path, and has benefits.
