Depends on cam choice?? Induction.. 205's seeing latter mods.You can grow into it...
You'd still be happy with 185's though..imo

205's for a 416 if your for real about it,but it really depends on cam and comp ratio, diff ratio, trans etc
all the above are needed to make a package work to its full potential

185's

If it's street only, 185's are perfect for a 351 or even a 393/406 if you go ahead and stroke it. You will love the usable torque on the street!

205's would be minimum for the 416. I was going to use 205's on my 391 with EFI. Simulations showed that the torque loss down low is non existant on the 391. 205's are perfect for a street 416 and are likely too small for a more serious combination. 225's may be more like it.
