Post Power Per Pound

Im just trying to figure out what is the best motor. Not only for performance but for a good wheight, what is the best engine that will give you good power, and will not make the front of your car as heavy as the Queen Mary. SO what engine gives the best POWER PER POUND??

a 400 cubic inch 4 cylinder????.... Seriously though it depends on what you are putting it in.. Some vehicals big block is better (200lbs or so more than small block) some small block is better. There is alot of arguement over this my opinion is small block is cheaper per horspower to a point... after that you are better off with a big block... whatever you get I reccommend you get the max amount of displacement out of it.

In my opinion nothing beats a chevy 350, not just because of the power to weight ratio but also due to the power to dollar ratio--which is also very important--and to the ease of finding parts for it.

I agree! I think either a 350 or a 400 SBC motor would be good. Also the 327 and 383 motors are hard to beat.
