On the street bigger is better,there is no substitute for cubic inches. A 76 Monti is not a small car and it needs tourque to get it moving. Whether you do it with a big or small block is up to you. If you want it quick the small block will work from stop light to stop light,but with 410 gears it will get old real fast on the highway running 3500rpm at 70mph. Ask yourself why everyone is building 383 and 406 small blocks,its for cubes,the grunt that makes things move. If you had a small car and no room for a big block it would be a different story your car came stock with 454s so going that route is a bolt in. Opinions are like belly buttons and small block chevys,everyone has one,dare to be alittle different and go with a big block :p
