    It all depends on what you want out of your car. there is a swap kit for it so it is not hard. I plan to do the same swap. It just sound cooler

    Go with a stroked 351W & have your cubes (up to around 427) with less weight & more room to work.

    You will have to decide since it is your car, but check out www.bigblockfox.com for some BB'ed cars. I like how the 460 sits in my engine bay, but it is a heavy mother.

    I would say stroke a 351 to 408 then you get the best of both... thats my plan, at least for now anyway
