bbc vs sbc

Thought i'd throw in my 2 cents. I have a 3600 lb car. I'm am currently running a 383 stroker. Chassis dyno at 350 hp 345 lb/ft torque to the tires. It has 373 gears and a 2800 rpm stall. The car is quick, not a rocket ship but quick. Well I went out and bought a 468 BBC. I'm going to install it in a few weeks. Computer dyno software puts it at 550 hp 586 lb/ft of torque + or - 2% at the crank. Just numbers anyway. Nothing radical just a nice grocery getter. In my opinion torque rules on the street. People are right about the cost factor. I'll let you know how it turns out in a couple of weeks. Hopefuly I won't be disappointed.
