Been building/racing big blocks and engines in general, professionally since the sixties. Have a little experience with them.

396 engines are hard to build compression with modern heads. The older good heads are like hens teeth. Good performance pistons are hard to get/expensive. Many are listed in parts books but are no longer axailable. Most of the reasonably priced stuff is for the 4.250 bore engines. etc. etc. etc...
