i have a 1974 Dodge Dart Sport with a cage in it. it has a 318 with headers on it and a 904 auto trans. is the 318 worth messing with or should i put a 360 in it. Pure Stock rules are 368 max c.i.d, pull 16in vaccume, no aftermarket heads, 2.02 valves, no pop up pistons, stock 2 barrel only,no port polishing or matching heads and intake, any factory rear end(dodge in dodge, chevy in chevy, ford in ford) 3 speed standard trans no 4 speeds or auto trans. 3400lbs with driver. any help is greatly appreciated

if you are new to racing, keep the 318, you will become a better driver, when you have the foot to the floor and you are lungin forward in your seat to go faster, and your car is all dialed in, than put a 360 in it.

Cageman is probably right. 318 is a good motor but the 360 is better in my opinion. It also dpends on a budget.
