    What's the better engine

    What's better, 460 or 429?

    I appreciate that it's only the stroke that is different but what's the difference in performance, reliability, is one more revvy, torquey, etc etc

    If youve got the option 460 all the way,reliability no differance,just more horsepower and torque.its a no brainer.
