What's the difference between big block and small block racing engines?

  • A big block racing engine is larger, with bigger valves, ports, and bores. A big block engine is heavier and puts out more power than a small block. The added weight can hinder acceleration.
  • A small block racing engine is simply a smaller version of a big block; the small block engine is less powerful, but lighter, which can provide a boost in acceleration.
