400 sbc vs 400 pontiac

So, ive been trying to find a 400 sbc to build this out of:
http://www.chevyhiperformance.com/te..._block_torque/

Now, im having a hard time finding one local and one guy I was shootin the **** with at a coffee shop suggested I just use a pontiac 400. I figured cubes are cubes, pontiac 400s seem alot easier to come by, why dont more people do it?

So my question is a few fold, are there major differences between pontiac and chevy 400s, or engines in general?

How do pontiac engines compare to chevy engines? (Or is it a taste thing?)

And I assume they are, but are the mounting brackets very different in a pontiac and chevy motor?

Oh, and does anyone know off hand the bore/stroke of a pontiac 400?

Thanks
