I like my 331, solid lifter motor with cheap untouched aluminum heads.
JMO, but I think the 333 (0.040 over 5.0L) is the best choice for a durable race engine. Would require a Dart block for extra insurance but unshrouding big valves makes a lot of power. The S/S champ in SEGA runs a '65 Caliente w/ one w/ dual quad intake.

Thanks Joe.
Been looking at aftermarket blocks. The Dart SHP Block is out of stock and the iron eagle block available around first of the year. Been awhile since I looked. Been concentrating on getting the car painted for now.
What stroke did they use for the 333?

3.25, like the 331 cid, Lou but the bore is an extra 0.010". 4.04"X 3.25"
Guys build street engines w/ the '91 5.0L roller block but I don't know how long they would hold up in a race application.
It may be a while before the Darts are available again.

Thanks Tom, and your right I did enjoy it. It is actually really close to what I want. Didn't see where they said what kind of block they used so assuming a Ford block. Planned on AFR 185 heads. Was leaning toward more cam than that, but might not be necessary. But I could definitely go with a engine like that! Thanks
