85 monte

I have a 85 monte carlo that came with a F.I. V6 and now has a 305 chevy V8 with a 350 trans. I want to change the motor and I have 2 options. One being a 88 camaro 5.7 tpi or Two being a chevy carb. 400. Is the camaro engine a good proformance engine for the 85 monte carlo or should I just go with the 400? Thanks for any help.

the one with the most cubic inches is always best!
Unless you have plenty of time to swap all the camaro`s pieces over to the monte to run the TPI then the 400 would be the easier swap. in stock form the tpi engine would likely out perform the 400, but give the 400 a small cam and good exhaust, she`ll roast the back tires off. the TPI engine can be converted over to a carb setup also, so in the end it`s up to you.
