Use the search function here for a ton of builds. Also, use free online calculators to get where you want to be with compression, you can plug in different chamber volumes, bore sizes, gasket thicknesses, quench, etc.

Here's some for starters. Piston volume is the dome or dish in cc's, for instance, flattops with valve reliefs might typically be 7 cc, a dome would be entered as minus, i.e. -10cc, in most calculators. Cylinder head volume is the volume of the combustion chamber in cc. Deck clearance is how far in the hold the piston is at TDC, typically .025" or zero deck, depending on whether the block has been shaved (decked) or the piston compression height (how far up the piston the pin is).

Moving this to the Basic Forum, you'll get more information there and less flaming than posting basic questions here. Welcome to the board.

Here are the basics of building a pump gas 400 SBC.

64 cc cylinder heads, match up with a 18 to 22cc D dish 400 SBC pistons

70 to 75cc cylinder heads match up with a flat top 400 piston.

The rest is details.

There are many good street high perf EFI systems to choose from
GM Ram jet,,, Edelbrock , professional products, FAST etc

Are you planning on building this motor yourself? Have you ever built a motor? It would be a shame to sink thousands of dollars into parts and not know what you're doing when putting it together. Anyone can put bearings in, install a crank, install pistons and connect them together with the rods and tighten bolts but do you know how to do it correctly?

you would be better off buying a complete engine and trans from a late model low mile chevy. Like a 6 liter LS with trans. can get a complete setup from fan to tail housing with efi and computer for less than 2000.00.

basically what F-bird said, 18cc D dished pistons, look at Keith Black for these. you can likely reuse the stock crank just have it resurfaced .010/.010". i would get pistons with a shorter compression height, ones that would accept the 5.7" rods. buy a set of 5.7" rods. if you want iron heads then go with the DART iron eagle platinum 200cc/64cc heads, if you want alm then go with the AFR 195 heads. a hyd roller cam with around 230°ish degrees of duration at .050 and .550" lift...

and since you want fuel injection here is a kit
