Default Where do you want it to perform?

There are many ways an engine can perform, low end torque or high end power. You really need to define your driving or racing parameters to make a decision.
If you are going road racing, a Coyote with a dry sump may be best. Not enough horsepower, supercharge it.
I personally run a 351W based 427 Dart, 572hp/585tq. It has a hydraulic cam, performer rpm manifold and is very streetable with EFI. Now that I have 6000 miles on the car, I am getting comfortable with the power and would welcome more. Keep in mind, even with 100 series tires, losing traction is effortless below 60.
I like the sound of the 500+ inch FEs, best. They are pricey and I cannot speak to their performance first hand.
Good luck,
