Well with my good ol' 396 long gone and my plans of building a blown engine out the window (no $) I want opinions on a 454 based family engine. I want to be able to let my kids tube or ski but still be able to get somewhere in a hurry on pump gas. Is that too much to ask?? I just want to turn the key and go just like my 396...when it wanted to go.
Im curious to know what has worked for you guys as far as cubic inch, compression ratio, 30 over, 60 over, stroked or not, single carb or tunnel ram, heads. I have access to some parts but I am basically starting over from scratch so any help will be appreciated.
