I currently have a 79 z28 Camaro that I have been drag racing a few years, now. It currently has a decent 355 in it right now. I am wanting to slowly build my dream blower motor and drop it in the Z when it is finished.

My dream motor since I was young was to have a blower sticking out of the hood. I have decided the type of blower(6-71) I think works but, not the size of motor. I grew up building chevy small blocks with my dad in his Nova.

So, should I go with a 383sbc or a 454bbc motor to compliment my blower? What are the pros and cons of both motors?

This will be strictly a drag racing motor.

502/511/540 With an 8-71 would be my choice. If you wanted a blown smallblock; I wouldn't use a stock block anymore. Get a Dart or other aftermarket block, build a 408/427 and go out and crush the opposition.
