351 blocks

Does anyone know which 351 block can handle the most power? Like what year and make of vehicle they were produced in, etc...
I'm thinking about building up an all forged 408 stroker motor but not wanting to spend most of my budget on a boss or sportsman block!

The 69-74's are considered the strongest.

Def the early models my bro has 69 that's stroked to a 393 with a charger on it pushing 12 psi he has had the motor for almost 3 yrs it holds up really good to a lot of abuse. I just picked up one and we are gonna do a 408 as well hope u get one u like bit definitely go with 69 to 74

Would those years be the cleveland, Windsor, or Modified motors?

Cleveland put out some good power with their high flowing heads, but the parts avable and cheaper parts sends more folks to the Windsor side, the modified is just a Cleveland crank in a Windsor motor- that's what I have always been told anyways

Yeah those 400 heads are pretty sick but there is a way to put them on the Windsor. The real big difference is just engine family which I'm assuming means like water jackets and stuff are different the cleveland is part of the 335 engine block family
