    Default 455 bottom end took a s%#t today!!

    So I've had my 76 Sanger with a mild built 455 and a berk pump and today at the lake I got a nice knocking out of the bottom end and she locked up on me... I knew it was eventually coming and want to go with a bbc just not sure what's the best cubic inch to go with. I had a buddy with a 427 on a eliminator that ran great and could run at a high rpm all day... I like to run my boat hard so just trying to find the best solution so I have a minimal amount of problems thanks for any input

    Perfect candidate for an LS.

    Go with as much CI as you can afford. Identify how hard you want to run it and build it accordingly. Have a plan or find a reputable builder to help you come up with build plan. If you build it right, there's really no reason for it to break regardless of size.
