The 'C' used to be the "right" way to go, but with the increasing number of performance parts plus the fact that the 'W' is physically smaller and a bit lighter, this is the better way these days. And with a C6 attached, probably a truck motor.

I am running a 351 W and am very happy with it. The parts are easier to find for the W than for the C.

I have to agree, go with the 351W. I have built 3 Cleveland engines and found the parts are quite abit more expensive and much harder to find. The Winsor is a little smaller in size and weight, but the parts are easier to find at a much more reasonable cost. Good luck with the 351W.

Clevor

Yup, the 351W is the way to go today. Best thing is if you wanted, you can even use cleveland heads on it,= Clevor.
