Re: BBC vs. SBC : weight vs. power????
I've got a 460 BB in my El Camino and a 355 SB in my Camaro. The Camaro is faster but the El Camino isn't that far behind plus it is not nearly as radical. My SB Camaro has surprised quite a few BB owners. The new 434 SB should shock the hell out of em!
I debated on building a 555 BB or a 434 SB for a while and went with the SB because people expect BB's to be faster.
