Got to compare those apples with apples, folks. The "FE lighter than 351" claim is based on an FE with aluminum heads and intake vs an all-cast iron 351. Do aluminum heads and intake on the 351 and do the math again.... Got to watch out for those with hidden agendas ! Dove Performance does FE's for a living.
Not that there's anything wrong with the FE - I've built a few and liked them real well.
Ok... why play with dinosaurs, why small block around, why bring a knife to a gun fight. Although a 385 series engine is heavy, what can you say to 557 dependable inches and an easy 750 streetable horsepower. Unless you want to go straight & then turn, THEN, my little 2.3 SVO ain't bad. Light & I've seen them make 400 RWHP too. Everyone has a preferance & I too agree Dove is selling FE's(good stuff) & I'd do anything to sell my stuff too.
