i think they are both great engines, saw many 400s,406,383s at the track. we had a 79 gmc jimmy that had a 400 in it and it blew up, we put a 355 in it and it lasted for years! i agree that there is no replacement for displacement, but in todays world gas is 3 dollars a gallon and im not looking to run my nova down any track. got a 327 but im torn between it and a 383.i would do a 400 but blocks are hard to find, and everybody and their brother is running 400s and 383s.a 327 i s a reliable motor and i think the best choice for my liking.not everyone elses.stock wise i think a 400 is a bad engine,had bad exp. with them,but helping a buddy build a 406 and can't wait to ride in it.i say build what makes you happy, cuz thats what it is about in christ..adam
