Which I personally wouldn't do w/a 355 SBC anyway- unless for some unknown reason I just had to have some of a racing class that required such a combination.

700 HP? Make mine a BBC, thanks just the same.
I agree with that. I would start with a BBC too for 600+ hp.

The basic engine is just so much stronger.
The cylinder heads are far superior.
