360 good 340 better if you can get your hands on one

I have a 66 barracuda and I have done the swap that you are talking about. I spent the money on the 340. But I tripped across a 70 340 short block that needed to be rebuilt for about 400.00. the problem that you will run into wiht the 360 is that it is an externally balenced which means that you will not be able to use the transmission that you are currently using. You will not only have to buy a motor you will need a different transmission. I went from a 273 to a 318 to a 340. If you do it right you can get about 350-400 hp out of that 318 and people would make fun of you untill you roasted them on the track. Joel
