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?

i dont know the bore and stroke of the pontiac but the chevy 400 is 4.125 and 3.750 stroke. i think the reason sbc 400 is hard to find is its runs better i know alot will read this and disagree, but ive seen this battle too many times.
