I couldn't agree more. I'm facing a similar problem with engine selection for my 57 Desoto. I have a 330 & 354 hemi as well as a 400 block and 440 crank to make a 451. I just ran across a deal on the correct 341 hemi my car is supposed to have. I keep eyeing the 5.7 Magnum Hemis that pop up on e-bay from time to time as well. Correctness? Most power per available cubic inch? Aftermarket parts availability? High tech? Reliability? One of these days I'm going to be forced to make a decision before I invest mega bucks building one of these engines for my car. Herman
