Re: building advice? 400?
You can spin the tires with a stock 400 and a 2V carb. and automatic transmission with
no alterations at all. You can use the 351C heads on the 400 but not recommended for street. Put in an R.V. cam, 2 inch exhaust and put the mufflers at the back. get a 3.11
or 3.28 diff. Use " shim " gaskets in the heads if you can find them. That will bring your head down about 1/8 inch. Your intake will still fit. You will not get a lot of R.P.M. out of
that engine but you will get a shit load of torque. There are hundreds of little things you
can do to that engine that don't cost a bundle. What are you putting it in ?
