Before you sell that 402 may I say this? A friend of mine has one in a 71 Nova drag car and you may not believe this, but it's faster than the 427 he used to run. The same cam and heads from the 427 are in and on the 402. The best times with the 427 were 6.24 in the 1/8th, the 402 has run effort less 6.18's and with alot of tire spin off the line. The fives aren't far off. Just something to consider. Besides for the amount of money you'd spend on a small block to try to equal the torque of the big block you could spend for that 12 bolt you want.
