Re: 383 sbc VS. 496 bbc 650 HP
TJS69 could you give me a little more insight as to what it takes to swap from sb to bb. I have never done it. $2000 seams a little high to me, but I am learning.
500 hp is for starters! That was funny!
Ok maybe 600 to 650 hp is a little over the top for a streeter. But maybe not. I read so many posts about guys building a motor, then wishing they had gone bigger. The way I see it, a 600 to 650 hp street car is as big as I would ever want to go, (you would never use it all anyway, but it's there), so why start with a 500 hp motor and then in a couple years, months or weeks, wish that I had gone bigger. Like one of my friends always says, "Why do it once when you could do it twice"!
Don't get me wrong, I'd love to have a 500 hp sb, and maybe I would be totally satisfied, for years to come, But since I am in the planning stage, I thought I would start B I G! Jim
