Bigger Big blocks are better than small big blocks so small blocks dont compare. Plus a big block just sounds better. :shock:

ha ha ha ..i love it..the oldest debate in history of racing..almost as good as Chevy vs Ford..
i was a small block guy all my life until 4 years ago and mind you i am into my 40's...well i got my 1st BBC (511 CI) and fell in love...this thing will pull effortless compared to my older small block's.....since then i have aquired a 632 all aluminum Big Block Big chief Motor..sheet metal intake with a pair of Chuck Nugtten dominaters....Although i have not run this motor yet i did watch it run in a 3300 lb vette with a 410 gear and 33 inch talls tires on a PITIFUL TRACK and it ran a 5.01et at 142mph...

keep in mind i have a 2100 lb car and a 4.30 gear...SO WHAT WILL IT RUN ???????


i did have one of the baddest ( my opinion) steel headed small blocks alcohol injected motors on the east coast a couple of years back..it made 1,000 hp at 9% over drive and could have been squeezed a little more...


so there is no replacement for displacement..i am a BBC man for life.

if i tell you i have a big block,your exspecting me to win...its like being a world champion,imo,i dont think its easy defending the tittle when someone can sneak up and take it.... :P

I don't know there. One race I was at, there were a couple old Ford Thunderbolt look alikes racing. I swear they were leaving the tree at 10K. Sounded wicked as hell. Almost makes a Chevy guy drool. :shock:
