I agree with you and the others who think the 327 is the best production small block (1st gen) Chevy produced..   It seems to have the right ratio of bore to stroke to have great rpm winding capability and also a good amount of torque...  Change the bore/stroke ratio very much in either direction and it seems to adversely affect one or the other.
