I wouldnt worry about it. Drive it like you got nothin in it or its just no fun. If it blows, well, that is part of rodding. A friend of mine spent money on all the good stuff for a BBC buildup for a race car. Went out on the street mess around a bit and scattered it all over the place. It was the first engine he ever worried about doing everything right on and a rod bolt still let go.

Sounds like a fun car by the way.

Thanks Turbo S10,
Actually that was my point, I'm not concerned,I had the block magged and sonic tested before I spent a dime on anything else (money well spent in my opinion)as we all know, "#*%@ can always happen" but in the words of my childhood idol, Afred E. Newman, "what? me worry?"
PS, this isn't my first 400 sb, as with any motor, check it out good before you start, if it looks good, have fun!!!
