    Thought I'd make a little Poll about it and see what's up. Poll expires in a month.

    My engine of choice is Buick Small Block, a 350 to be exact.

    Looking forward to seeing all the results.

    there is no such thing as a Pontiac small block or big block, they are intermediate blocks

    I think everyone knows what he means. Might be better said as Pontiac small-journal engines or large journal engines.

    The Olds Small Block, for it's time similar HP with a better torque and more reliable than brother "C" in the dark 70's especially.

    Right now the Monte Carlo still has the TBI 4.3 under the hood. It's not too bad for a daily driver engine. It has a lot more torque than I expected and it's been very reliable. As good as it's been, it will be replaced by a Vortec 350 from a '99 Yukon.

    I am pretty sure most know what I am running in my Monte even though there is not a single part on it made by GM.
