Sure makes a car go fast though!
No doubt it's a personal preference thing. I would agree that the sight of a roots type blower setting on a BBC looks pretty awesome and gets the most looks. But still, the cruises and shows I go to there are so many cars with SBC engines, it's like 69 Camaros, I like 69 Camaros, but seems everyone has one, but that's off topic.
Anyway, for more than one reason, I think BBC is the better way to get to your 700HP range.
