i say go with the 351 stroked. IT is a much easier swap, and for the money making the 428cj fit and bolt up you can make a 351 scream!

+1 on the 351, options are unlimited and aftermarket parts are cheaper and easier to find.

how much u got to spend cause if i were u i would find a boss 429 motor they are on ebay all the time for like 810-15 grand, thats well over 500 hp out of the box rite there, or go 351 cleveland they are really good motors, take to mods real well only prob not a whole lot out there for them, but if u put a big cam port the heads and then a big intake and carb u got a 500 hp monster rite there

If you already had the 429 then I would say go for it, Big blocks are mean as hell, and hard to beat. But a stroked 351 will be much easier to do and you wouldnt be dissapointed.

+1 on the 429 if you already have it.. and stroke it out to like 530something cubes... huge single plane high rise and some nice brodix aluminum cobrjet heads and a 2 stange nitrous and back it with a c6 with a stall and a trans brake and a 9 inch with a locker and some really big gears.. like 4.56 or 5.whatever... mini-tub the back.. throw on some 29 or 28 inch tall slicks and have a deadly crazy and deadly fast car.. 8's anyone?
