I like speed and power so.... should I be looking only at 427's and or punched out 351's or do the 302's provide enough power and performance?
IMO, a SBF belongs in a Daytona Coupe, slabside (Mk I or Mk II), FIA or USRRC replica, an FE goes in a 427 S/C or coil spring (Mk III) replica.

Just my $0.02.
