BBC all the way but not a MK IV, a MK I. Yes for those of you scratching your head the MK I is a 409, I am running a 475 stroker W motor with Hilborn mechanical fuel injection, makes 600 HP on pump gas with 10.5:1 compression. Its fun to watch people try to figure out what the hell is that, you can tell the younger generation guys from the older ones. The 409 is Chevrolets original Big Block and a version of it was Chevrolets first 427, the Z11! Nothing against SBC, they are great motors but they are like belly buttons, everybody has one. I also have a 67 Corvette with a 327 and I never open the hood because I feel like people don't want to see another SBC with a chrome air cleaner and aluminum rocker covers, sorry I know Ill take heat for that.
