Will 327 heads fit on a 350?
They are perfect for a 350.
Both the 327 and the 350 have a 4″ bore so they like the same heads.
Old heads like that will have softer valve seats, so if you want them to last a long time, you should either replace the seats or run leaded gas in the engine..
When did Chevy stop making the 327?
The last iteration of the 327 appeared in 1969 with a two-barrel carburetor and a 9-to-1 compression ratio that produced 235 horsepower and 325 foot pounds of torque, but by then another Chevrolet small-block had already appeared on the market and had begun stealing what thunder the 327 had left.
Are 327 and 350 blocks the same?
The difference in the displacement comes from the crankshaft stroke. The 327 uses a 3.25 inch stroke, where the 350 uses a longer 3.48 inch stroke(thats what makes it bigger). Depending on the year of the block, the biggest difference in the block itself is the main journal size.
How much horsepower can you get out of a 327?
Rated at 375 hp, the fuel-injected 327 was a high-winding screamer, as satisfying to drive as any big-block. At the other end of the spectrum, the 327 was also offered at much more pedestrian power levels, as low as 210 hp (gross).
Why is a 327 better than a 350?
In the vehicle, it’s more of a matter of “gearing” than revs. A 327 with it’s shorter stroke would need shorter gears so it can GET to its revs, where a 350, with its slightly longer stroke and more torque output will pull a little taller gear than the 327 will.
Is 350 or 327 engine better?
With all other things being equal—-the 327 will rev higher (short stroke)—-the 350 will make more torque (more cubes-longer stroke). Both are great engines and respond well to performance upgrades!
