It is easier to get 400 Horsepower from a Big Block than a Small Block. The heads are of a better design (Semi-Hemi).

You will have to rework your heater box so that the heater tube outlets come out almost under the hood hinge. Factory Big Block Novas and Camaros were done this way at the factory.
