a 327 can be built to almost keep up with an equally built 350, it can come REALLY close in terms of total power as a 350, but in the end a few more cubes will ALMOST always give you an advantage.

Going with the bigger bore of the 400 changes the game as you can run much better heads and it'll walk all over the 327 and 350- provided of course you can keep it together 400 blocks are notorious for failing around the 550hp range- which the 327 and 350 can also be built to hit.
