c63 and M3 displacement question..

I will preface this by saying, this is NOT a thread about the m3 vs the c63. We all know the pro's/cons of each car.

I had a few technical questions though, the m3's displacement is 4.0.. and the c63 is at 6.2

Now what I wanted to know was which motor is technically under more stress? (As in power wise) Does the displacement have anything to do with it?

I do understand the c63 is easier to extract more power from because of the higher displacement, but why?

So basically, i need a crash course on displacement.. So you motor heads can enlighten me...
