SVO blocks, new to windsors?

Heya all you windsor fans i may be ditching my clevo and getting an SVO block to build a 350 to 380'ish windsor with AFR225 heads.

Anyone have any experiences with SVO blocks and if you were building a turbo V8 what cubes would you use 330 350 380 410 the prices between each are much the same I don't know what to go for.

My setup will be as follows
single GT42 turbo running anywhere between 15 to 25 psi blow thru 750 and aiming for 500/street and 800/track RWHP. Will be intercooled.
Car is 83FD LTD with auto 2800stall and 3.0 rear end, pretty heavy.

My thinking is that the smaller cubes make more HP due to being able to handle more boost where the larger cubes make more TQ but are unable to handle as much boost. From that I think a 380cuber suits my heavy car?

Any feedback?
Thanks

Re: SVO blocks, new to windsors?

Blown or turbo can use much higher flowing heads though...As torque generally isn't an issue...Vict jnrs are an old workhorse too.....
