I did a thread a long while back and I was like really confused because one group was saying it is and another said no. This was bouncing off different sites and I believe I now know why I was having a hard time. I believe the information I am looking for may be rare. I understand it much better now and was asking the question in the wrong way because I did not understand completely what I was looking for. You have 2 engines, ( this is hypothetical ). - They are the same HP and have the exact same power curve on paper but one needs twice as much RPM to do it so once you cut the gear in half on the engine that needs more RPM to do it's peak HP they are the exact same in real world use or is this wrong. One group was saying it is the same and one group says no it is not. One of the groups is saying the engine that does the work earlier with more torque is more powerful in the real world and can drive more load to peak output. Thanks for any input.
