Looking at purchasing a new sbc shortblock from Shafiroff and debating on which one. Have a set of Promaxx 225 heads and my Hilborn stack injection. Have a set of 4.30's in the pumpkin and not sure which way to go. 421 or 434.

Only reason I can see for buying smaller engine given choice would be if it had smaller bore and could be bored out more later. Other wise go as big as you can afford.
