496 vs 511 vs 525
If you’re buying a rotating assembly, crank, rods, and pistons, why wouldn’t you build the largest displacement practical.
Considering the same compression, appropriately sized cam, wouldn’t the longer stroke make more average power?

It seems like a 525 would be a nice torquey cruiser to pair up with a 3.08 gear and have a decently smooth idle and still run 11s on 87 octane.
I’ve read plenty both ways, thoughts on what you seen?
Canton 13-30 pan, pay attention to windage of course, extra drain holes in front and back of block, reduce oil draining down the oval openings while keeping open for air.
Heads will be AFR290. Cam choice open right now but not huge. 250-260 HFT or 243 HR. Airgap intake, max power by 5800.
Proving every day hindsight is 20/20.
