All things considered in terms of cost I think a ~3-4+L engine would be the most cost effective way to make power, especially considering that engines ~1.5-2x the size only weigh ~25-50% more than some of the HO fours. We aren't getting to the point where mileage sucks because the engine is too large to gear down, but we also don't have to run obscene boost or swap internals to get to ~500hp. IMO of course.
