    Default 496 or 540

    Hey guys i got an oil presure issue with my old 496 and have to rebuild. Question is since ive got everything to build either a 496 or a 540 what would be the best? I've heard that theres no replacement for displacement in a jet boat. My old 496 was puttin out 780 hp @ 6300 and 700 pounds or torque at 5500. Would i notice much difference cuz im gonna be runnin about the same amount of power.

    Cubic inches with the same set up will always win.

    If your block can support the bore for a 540, build a 540.

    BTW...I'm looking for a set of 496 pistons...PM me if they're still any good and you want to sell 'em.
