I am about to move into the sportsman modified class and am trying to get a price comparison from as many racers as possible. I know that running a classic 350 would be cheaper but i am a dodge lover at heart. How much more do yall think it would be to build a 360 compaired to a 350.thanks

Rough guess would be 30%-40% over a comparable 350. I'd guesstimate a 351W to be about 20%-30% more than a 350. Just an educated guess though.

depends on what parts you want to use.I run a small ford and i've put a couple chevies together .My motor runs with bowties costing 3 times as much so as far as being more exspensive thats not always true.The cheap chevy parts are getting harder to come by every day ,all the scrap yards are crushing everything now.

go to mopar

they will tell you all you need to know.

340king are good guys.

a mopar or ford 360 will make MORE power easy.

i am a chevy guy, but i can read, and its been proven over and over.

what type of rules are you running as for chassis is it a stock chassis that has to mached with the engine ie mopar motor mpoar chassis if so your not only going to have to over come $ but weight and finding a car that is worth a dang to start with
