    360/375 fuel injected solid lifter cammed 327 cu in, the engine the Beach Boys liked enough to write a song about.

    My favorite is the 1970 LT1 350 rated at 370 horses. The same engine used in the 1970 Z-28 but was down rated to 360 horses. It was a very strong, high-winding small block.

    They used the fulie 202 heads from the 64-65 L84 - 375HP - 327 to build that LT1 with a longer stroke, the cam performance in the LT1's #178 camshaft specs were far below the that of the 327's 30/30 cam which had more lift & duration, if you were to install that larger 30/30 cam into a larger cubic inch motor all the timing specs would even be less. The fuel injection camshaft alone makes up for the 23 cubic inchs the LT1 has plus the LT1 cam's power dropped off way sooner then the race inspired 30-30 Duntov cam, each gear with the Duntov 30/30 was worth 500 more pulling rpm, you hook that to a 4.56 or 5.38 and is all over by the 60 foot marker. The LT1 is a really nice street motor and was well suited for the car they were in, to bad BB came along...but small blocks came back to rule the day, like the LS motors

    Hello MB-83, definitely GM's 427cid in the Classic Corvette Stingray with its 425bhp and 415lbs/ft torque. In 1966 Corvette featured a new egg-crate grill which I love and functional engine compartment cooling vents. In 1966 Chevy's new 427cid replaced the 396cid as Corvette's top power-plant option as well as the new today's 427cid. It is the best!
