Your call. But over the years, like many here, I've had both engines. My Camaro has only been a BBC car. Massive components. The engine bay with a small block just isn't as neat as a BB. Sorry guys. Of course weight is a big factor. Only the block is iron. Even the radiator is aluminum and the batteries are in the trunk. I like to go around corners FAST!Id keep the smallblock and forget about the boat anchor.
