Hands down, big block! If your not going to run a class that requires a small block than dont limit yourself right out of the box.

A big small block with a turbo.. Putting a big block in a Fox is not the easiest thing in the world.. The headers want to hit the ground..

what he said....plus there is a weight advangtage too....even with a turbo setup and all the extra plumbing it still adds up to what a BB will weight by itself or close to it.

BigBlock and if you get the correct headers it will work fine. Its all on how you set the car up from the get go.
If you have MONEY then run a turbo or a F-3.

Big Block, I wished I had started with a big block instead of a small block.

Most are going to say BB. Including me. There is no substitute for CI.

But my alm LS1 puts up times that will give any mildly built BB a run for it's money and is a good deal less weight. But the BB has a lot more potential..
