Currently, after I get done with all the other restoration plans, I would like to have my car putting out around 400 to maybe even 500. What would be the best bet for this and any advice would help.

Oh and what would it take to stroke over a 289 to a 347? Same as a 302?

My opinion, use a 351W and build a 393. With high horsepower you want the stronger bottom end.

No comparison,if the windsor will fit in your car go with the bigger stronger motor.It will be easier to meet your power goals and the engine will last longer and be more streetable.

If you are looking for a true 400 rwhp go with the 393 or 408, more bang for the buck. If you want to keep the same basic block size that will not be noticeable, speak softly but carry a big stick, consider the 331 or 347.
