A racing buddy called his converter guy and was told, "Anything under 3,ooo# to use a glide over that a 350 or 400 would be quicker". If I remember right his 3600 lb SBC Chevelle was .02 quicker with the 400. In this case i would consider it a wash. In my opinion a high torgue engine may not need the low gear of the turbo.
