    Hi Bob, You will get 100 different views on that question. I,m running a 347 @ 425hp, 400 ft lbs. It is very much enough for zip. It makes you smile and shit at the same time. It seems to be a good match for the traction dept as it hooks up real well with the 335/17 rears It also fits in the hood but very tight. I had considered 351 variants but chose not to go the way because of the height problem and also and additional 70 lbs up front. I had my engine built by a performance co., but if I was to do it again I would go to Mike Forte and buy the entire set up from him with the Tremec with the mid shifter. The midshifter is what I have now but mike with one stop shopping and a guy to talk to would be much more direct. He helped me out even though I didn't buy it from him. There as many different variants of the 347. you can go fron 330HP up to I think about 475. Have fun---it can be a great decisions process and fun

    Hey fellas,
    Give me your ideas on engines. I'm still in the planning stage. I'm thinking a crate engine for a Daytona Coupe build. No racing. Mostly driving around the street. Want to keep it simple. But also want the "wow" factor when you start and drive. Also, like the car to have some zip (or potential for zip).
    Give me your ideas on engines, horsepower, and vendors. Thanks.
