Re: bigblock questions ...409 & tall deck 427!

The 366 and 427 (not all 427s, just the tall deck ones) are both industrial engines that have different deck heights than a normal engine. They both feature massive crankshafts and have impressive low end torque. The 427s can be readily stroked to about 527 or so, search Google, there's a few articles.
