What's Faster for highway pulls? 2.0-2.4

I am gathering information for what I'd like to build and cannot find solid evidence on what's faster for a 40-140mph highway race. The 2.0 seems to rule the dragstrip but the 150+ wtq seems like it would win out all day with the 2.3/2.4 and a 2.2 seems like the inbetween. Any input is appreciated.👍

Why street car people don't go with a 2.2 for all their builds is beyond me.

If all you are doing is highway pulls, then I would stay way from the strokers. You're going to want to go destroker because your goal here is to make the maximum amount of power possible at a high RPM, reliably. 2.1 Long Rod Destroker in a 4g64 block (10k + RPM) will give you a better than stock rod ratio and help you make all the power you want. It will just be a laggy bastard on the streets of your town haha. Rev's are what is needed to spool a larger turbo and building a stroker will limit your revs. The extra air volume they intake per stroke doesn't compensate for what high revs will do for a turbo. That being said, you do make more HP and TQ per PSI of boost pressure with the strokers. Again, you will limit RPM with them which would hinder a highway monster. A stroker will still get the job done if you're not running anyone crazy.

Thanks for the input, anyone else? Personally, torque moves mass and wins street races. Ever try to drive around a nitrous car? Very hard to beat a properly set up NO2 car 40-140. More twerk than a ghetto claphouse

I would build a 94mm crank motor, Unless you're going to make over 1k, then stick with stock stroke.

There's no reason to build a 2.1 destroker, the rod ratio isn't needed. Standard rod 2.0 4g's rev past 10 no issue. Though you should really be considering a dry sump past 9500.
