    For what purpose? Not saying it's a bad choice but why would you go with a big block 348 instead of a 350 or larger small block? Or a larger big block?

    Oh... from your earlier post I didn't think the 348 came in el camino's/chevelles (you only mentioned impalas.)
    Also the small block came as a 305 which you didn't mention... code L04 and LB9 comes to mind.

    The 348's were in the 1st gen el caminos(1959-60), which shared the same frame as the impala, bel air, biscayne etc, 58-61.

    Chevelles didn't recieve 348's(discontinued already) or 409's(available in larger cars) since they were released as a 64 model, and the 409 was being phased out at that time.

    The 305 was a later model small block.

    So what im getting from this is...Yes, there is one 350 BB but it was pointless once they could make a 350 SB? Being the SB had the same displacement but was smaller and lighter. Correct?

    A 348 isn't a 350.

    348's were made in the late 50's early 60's. The 350 was first used in 67.

    I assumed he was talking about Chevrolet. As all of the "350" engines of GM are different. It's hard to tell the difference between a 350 and 455 right?

    Hi

    Hi,
    This is an important thing done by the people. They did the hard work at this stage.

    My 70 Chevy Belair had a 350

    And, in my 17 years in the Car business that is ALL I have ever known there to be in a 350 is a small block. . . Now, he may be confusing that with the bullet proof Small block 350 4-bolt main. . . DEFINITELY, the choice of 350's to build around. . . Other than the 2 different sizes of 400 block that is about all I know.

    How can you guys be car guys and not know that there's a 350 big block? It makes me wonder if they weren't used as much in the United States as they were in Canada. Millions of cars have them. I had a 77 firebird with one. I"m not sure if it was original, but it sure was a 350 big block. I still have a '77 Oldsmobile Delta 88 which my grandparents bought new, with it's original 350 big block. Pontiac, Buick and Oldsmobile shared this engine and put it in all kinds of cars. It looks just like any big block from those brands. Anywhere a 350 big block is sitting, a 455 will bolt right in. I have made this swap several times. Also, the 301 turbo and non turbo is a big block and can be swapped out for a 350 BB or a 455. Straight exchange.

    I think the Chevy small block 350 is a more versatile engine and is better for all kinds of reasons, but you can squeeze tons of power from a 350 BB if you wanna spend the money.
