You need to put down the crack pipe my friend....
Come on now... Give me 5K to spend on a big block and you take 5K to build you a small block and then we will meet up and see who builds more power.
You are on some heavy stuff if you think someone has to spend 12K on a BBC to keep up with a small block.
You need to stroll around the pits some more or go to some real races.

Yeah best way to pick that 454 up. Is get a cherry picker, pick it up and sell it:-)
Sorry I'm too anti-big block.
Big block means big dollars and that is all.
It's far too sad to see guys that spend 10's of thousands of dollars just to make thier big blocks keep up with small blocks.
One of the big issues with BB's is thier heads, the heads on them are just crap. Don't know how many of them I've seen goto crap.
Every thing you do with a BB is twice as much as SB's. And you have a lot more mass to get moving.
So you can take the big block, spend 12-14 grand get a good going 500hp machine. Or you can take a small block, spend 4-5 grand and get a good going 600-700hp machine. Take your pick:-)
