i would use the 4.000 x 3.48 it is a 350 the 4.125 x 3.25 is an early 60's 348. the 350 will be alot easier to get parts for. if you have a 348 post it on ebay or something. it is worth alot more than you might think.

I think chickasaw's talking about a destroked 400, they run 'em in Winston Cup with something like a 3.34 stroke.
