    how much would an engine like that cost
    30 year ago that would have been 3 times that size to get that sort of horsepower.
    it is very small for 650hp

    Throw away engines, not built to last like the old ones.

    The engine installed 30 years ago that would have been three times as big as this would have lasted at least ten times as long though. I can't remember the exact saying but its something along the lines of "there's no substitute for cubes".
    Sadly naturally aspirated engines are largely a thing of the past.
    turbo and super charged engines are more efficient than naturally aspirated engines. Fact of it is, almost everyone wants the most power from the smallest, cheapest unit possible.
