Default Which one of these engines would you build?

I was wondering if you had the choice which engine you would build. I was thinking a 327 with a small blower, a 383 stroker or a 427 stroker all small blocks.

You can get 460 out of the LS7!

That is cool, how many hours do you have on them now?
