zz427 or zz502
I have a question for the experts of you.
I have a 69 Camaro SS RS. Currently with a 427cui from 1970 and a tremec 5 speed. The engine is not reliable anymore. The water pump just died.
Now I want to put a new crate engine in, keep the 5speed and have a reliable, streetable cruise car with power and great sound. Engine should be already assambled since I am not an expert and will ask a workshop to do it.
Currently I am between the GM zz427 and the zz502. I saw that both are around 9,000 USD. That's the amount I am willing to spend on the engine.
What do you recommend for my purposes?
No race, reliable!, lot of power, good sound.
Thanks for your recommendations.
