In a NA engine more so than in a Turbo'd engine. You can compensate for less torque from the engine by adding boost so that it makes up the torque deficit when on boost.

But a comparable engine, but with longer stroke, would make more torque under same boost conditions. Or the same torque with less boost.

But I'd rather have a bit higher boost to compenaste the torque lost due to shorter stroke and the higher rpm/lower piston speeds possible on a short stroke engine.

It should feel much more alert than a "lazy" N55 335i.
