Re: twin turbo. 400 or 302?

The 5.o will take 500 at the fly...
Big block atleast 1000 h.p with correct rotating assembly...
Depends if daily driver or efi ?? etc
400 h.p makes a nice torque engine..
The big block I would build around 5/600 h.p and drive around on low boost and keep rpm low..Build with tight deck height with 8.5 to 8.8 compresion...
T66 / Master power t70 etc? for the Windsor and Gt42 with t6 flange ???
Depends on power goals and transmission etc....The big block is by far the stronger...go to 3w' there is so much information there....

Don't be afraid to try something new. Remember, amateurs built the Ark...Professionals built the Titanic!
