vs commodore
I know a bloke who spent around $10,000 on a 253 years ago,and he was spewing from day 1 that he didnt do the same work to a 308 instead.It went really well for a little V8,but it lacked that ultimate "oomph".Even 308's havent got a real lot of power compared to say a 350 chev or 400 chev or even a 351 ford V8.And they all pretty much cost around the same to do the performance work to and to buy the "goodies" for.,Id do the work to the biggest engine I can run.For a commodore thats 308 unless you stroke the 308 of course,which is another option,you could just go bigger than everyone else to be different.Im not even sure what size you could stroke a 308 to.

Not sure what the biggest you can stroke a 308 too is, but I've got the recipe for a 340 (from memory) 253. Don't think it would last long though...
