I think it is just personal preference....The motor being better persay is upto the individual buying the motor....The 2.34 and 2.43L destroked LR motors have better volumetric effiency than the 2.5L....

It is really a moot point though....The bottom end is reliability....the power is in the breathing....

(Rant off topic) When is a company going to come out with a head/cam combo including upgrade/larger throttle body and a better intake manifold.....
