You really don't need to post two threads for the same question.
My opinion is to go with the 327, but that is a biased opinion due to the fact that there are so many 350's out there that they bore me. The 350 is a better all around street engine with a more broad powerband it is just that I am sick of hearing "I gotta 350".
No offense to anyone it's just that I get bored with the same ole, same ole stuff and have to do something different.
its gonna go in my s-10. im either goin to rebuild my 350 topend with a trickflow trackheat kit. or just yank that 350 and drop in a 327 because the truck is pretty light and a fast revvin 327 would probably make a difference
If you get a late model 350 with a roller cam it will more than make up for any "rev" improvements with the 327.
You can't argue that a roller 350 with or without vortec heads is going to be less streetable than a flat tappet 327. If you want to waste time and money because you are "bored" or want to think that somehow a non-numbers matching 327 will be nostalgic, well I won't be able to convince you anyway.
Listen to lluciano,he is right on the mark,your only advantage would be gas milage,and with your hp expectations,you will need a big cam,there goes that benifit right down the toilet." For low dollar streetable power,you want all the cubes you can get from factoy stuff. I used to argue the same way you do,and I did build some hot stuff,strait 6 motors that kept up with big blocks,302 chevs that turned 8000,but you know what,all I did was prove I could,bottom line is,they were very time consuming,expensive,high maintainance motors that could have been smoked for a lot less effort. Im just trying to tell you what others should have told me then." Im not saying a 327 is a bad motor,in fact I like em,just dont get your expectations of hp up if you want it to run right as a driver.
