Budget Sbc Build
 
Hey Guys, back again, this time im doing a budget 400 build for my nephew.
This is by no means a race engine, high performance build, but simply a budget build for my nephew with decent power and good torque. I know there are a lot of sbc 400 builds but im looking for possible HP/ torque numbers. Here is what we are going with:

817 2 bolt block w/ arp main bolts
Cast crank 10/10
Resized rods w/ arp bolts
cast pistons
Balanced assembly
LUNATI 227/233 @ 50 (268/276) voodoo cam/lifters
Professional products air gap intake
EQ Heads(180cc) ported and polished
Flowtech long tubes 1 5/8
2 1/2 full exhaust w/ flowmaster 40 series
Turbo 350( 2200 stall)
Stock rear gear for now.

Was looking for comments/advice on this build. Not trying to put together a race car but a strong car a teenager. Hoping for a nice street car with some get up And go. Thanks in advance for comments/help and advice.

this one way of putting something. Are you using the normal 5.565 inch rods and stock factory 'cast pistons'?

VARS_85MONTE 10-25-2011 06:44 PM

Yes, we are using the stock rods but had them resized AND had bolts replaced with ARP hardware. The cast pistons came from Competition Products. Like I was saying, its just a nice toy for my nephew. Was hoping for HP/torque estimates and any budget minded help that's given.

im thinking the compression is up even without a zero deck, the heads displace the 64 cc chambers so 9to 1 is a given. I say near or at 400 hp 450 ft pounds is a given on this combo.
Couldnt give exact dyno but this is my educated geuss (estimate) with the combo listed
peak hp = 390 to 400 hp@ 5500 to 5800 rpms
peak tq = 400 to 450 @ 3500 rpms. Hope this helps.

How much are these EQ heads?

VARS_85MONTE 10-26-2011 04:53 PM

I got them from a local machine shop that was trying to get rid of them for 250 bare. Home ported them myself. They look nice tho

hey thats not bad for a set of after market heads that flow 20% better than stock vortecs. If i had a deal like that, woulda took em too. I believe there expensive heads.

VARS_85MONTE 10-28-2011 06:10 PM

I bought them because they are a nice head and this was strictly a budget build. And I got THEM at a Great price. I've heard They flow great and the motor is installed and sound Great!!! I am a happy I ran upon these.
