A while back someone had a link to a TMS 388/427 short block Holiday price
and I cannot seem to dig up the thread and link.
I’d like to compare the deal
price (that’s apparently gone now).
Just for research purposes. Asking for a friend….

Anyone have the link or the thread?

Are you referring to the dart 388? If so they had it on sale for 8499.00

My poor memory tells me the deal was called a “388/427” and I could swear it was SIX-thousand-something…. like $6,883
Also I think it was actually before Thanksgiving and it was mentioned in someone’s Loooooooong build thread

IIRC, Bladez posted that link. I remember seeing it and it was a 388/427 for under 7k.

Pat g just tuned an 388 vette with stock ported heads and blower to over 1,000 hp. Basically the same build I'm doing.

But but … “FourTwentySeven” sounds SO much faster and sexier than 388.

It might be but when the man says the 388 is better, a wise man must listen to the wiser man.

Nope, it’s gotta be in there if it’s on there. If it’s mine at least. i WOULD like to build a legit 427.

376 and 388 just seem not as…. sexy?

As an unrepentant fan of ‘old school’ MKIV Rat Motors, Rocket motors, RB blocks and old Caddys….
I have already wasted too much thought to just how wild a 500” ‘70 Caddy mill would be if stuffed into a v… just for the bizarre of it.
