I built a 428 Pontiac a few years ago and ran a Demon Carb even larger with great results...If I remember correctly it was an 850 CFM.

Like I said...just my thoughts.

the HEI needs to be upgraded,the stock HEI needs a better external coil.Im not sure what the 400 heads flow so get them tested and make sure the cam matches the heads.It sounds to me like a 13 second combination not 12.
Still not enough information.Are you using slicks or drag radials?
