I am looking to purchase a bbc dart short block and im trying to decide between the 540 555 or 572ci blocks. All forged internals. The car it is going into is going to mostly be a street rod with a quarter mile run here and there. Ive heard that these blocks with a 4.50 inch stroke are more for racing application and a 4.250 inch stroke is more mild for longevity and better for a ****** street rod? Any other things i should know or any good advice?

If you are spending the big bucks there is a hotrod basic. "Ain't no substitute for cubic inches!".
