    I would put my money on the 351. Mainly because it is bigger. With duel exhaust your car should hit about 160 hp. the 351's start at 180.
    You should be able to hit 140 mph easy. I have hit 132 running like crap.

    Some details on the 351W would be helpful aswell, 2bbl, 4bbl, whats it in, is it original? I seem to remember that the 351W I have out of my 79 econoline was rated at like 120-140, not that amazing

    if my brother is bigger than your brother, who would win in a fight?!?! WHOOOO

    more information is needed, i could get a single barrel carb, slap it on a 351, some exhaust manifolds with 1.5" exhaust, and be a turd, or you could go full EFI...etc

    and why would you even care about top speed? it serves no purpose
    It's Gumby's fault.

    Let's just assume we're talking about Windsor blocks here. Not much chance of a cleveland.

    Top speed = teh win! 190mph is the best!
