The 427 was built as a race car. A trained professional can manage to get the 427's hp over the 289s effectively to the ground. Mere mortals like me and most of you cannot. Especially on the street.. the engine wanted to run at a much higher rpm than ordinary driving could do. Really, 3rd was the happiest spot.

For that reason I would do a 289 car if I do another cobra.
