just my opinion, but if ur gonna spend the money on gas to run a bbc, get a new or used reduction unit. it sure does make it alot more 4x4.

The 502 would lose. The 500 cadillac is lighter and makes much more torque then a 502 in the 0-3000rpm range.

502 is just getting into its power at 3500 rpm. You dont want to swing any prop faster than 3000. Caddy is better choice for DD.
