400 block questions

I found a 400 block that just came from a machine shot that is 30 over and 0 deck 4 bolt. I plan on around 400-450 plus 100 nitrous. Do you think I should get the block $400. I have trickflow 195cc heads. Will my oil pan work it was on my 350? I know I will need to drill holes in head and get new balancer and flywheel what else will not work?

Hi,
If your talking about a Chevy 400 w/4 bolt mains I would
let it go, their week, if you want cubes,torque, & reliability get a BB.

If you have a 350 rotating assembly anda 400 block you can reuse the crank, flywheel, rods, and balancer if you run a 377. you'll need spacer bearings and pistons to round it out. It'll get you an easy 450 horses and as long as its built properly should have no problem standing up to a 100 shot of nitrous.
