400 sbc buildup

Hi. I have a 66 acadian 2 dr post i'm going to make into a faster race car.(was a bracket car). I have a 400 sb 509 2 bolt block and crank for a start point. I want to get the car into the low tens or if possible high nines. i'll use a glide, i have a 9.5 converter that stalls around 4800, and i'll back half or mini tub it.(not decided which way to go.) I want to go n/a, no nitrous. I'm looking for information on other setups with the 400. How fast and what's your combination. I think the best plan is to have one. LOL! If you could give me any ideas on your combo or what you have built in the past, It would be greatly appreciated. Thanks. Barry.

Thanks f-bird88. Thats the ideas i'm looking for. sounds like a top end kit, roller cam and good rods and pistons are the ticket. I have no problem using race gas. If anyone has any other ideas/Combos please let me know. Barry.

HMMMMMMMMMMM 1300 horse right on the money was this another DD or actuall put on a engine dyno. Why do Dart and GM build peformance blocks.

The other engine builders I deal with would not even attempt to try this as it takes a lot of good parts and a a fair amount of money to build an honest 1300 horse and using a stock block and crank HMMM

My point of view its hard to believe that this is factual info. This sounds like a world record.

KIDS DON'T TRY THIS AT HOME
