That makes sense to me. If it makes sense to you for your application and purposes don't worry about what anyone else thinks. Go for it man! It might just pay off in the long run.

Agreed it does make sense if you have a pile of go goodies already to use. I have a pair of 454's 1 4 bolt Gen IV peanut port block and a 73 with a stout cam, ported oval port 781's, Victor-O intake etc... I just cant imagine worse gas mileage than this 360 rofl. Both mine need better pistons (low compression) by the time I build them both it would cost me as much to find and build a 401. However I bet a 496 would move this wagon nicely

It might be the same mileage. Sometimes the big power plants require the same or less fuel to push our bricks down the road. The straight 6's get about the same mileage as a 360 in the city. Give or take a MPG or two. I'm willing to bet they would net you around the same MPG. Go for it and sell me your axles when you have to swap them for all that power
