Hello everybody,


I know we have all sorts of different age generations on this board. What is your favorite small block engine of all time? My Dad has a 1970 Dart Swinger with the 340 4 barrel set up. He ended up putting a bigger cam in the engine after warranty was over he told me. That car is a flat out screamer. Till this day that is MY favorite small block of all time.

Plus another one for the Mopar 340. They'll take almost anything you can throw at 'em.

Love me some steel crank and shaft mount rockers!

They're all pretty good. My two favorite are the old 340ci mopars (late 60's to early 70's) and the GM LSX 346 ci (1998-on).

The 340 mopar was a runner. If you lined up next to one in your SS396 you better be on your toes. The 327 Chevy is a good runner too.

I've always owned Fords, and loved the 289-302 series of engines. When tuned well, they are fun.

However, when it comes to a really fun small block engine, I'm going to have to go with the 7.0L LS7 engine that started out in the Z06 Corvette. Sure, it's 427 cubic inches, and that's what makes it so great. Just enough power, everywhere.


People who count on their fingers should maintain a discreet silence.
