After an entire year and 2 weeks I finally started my 407cid sbc!!!! Boy let me tell you it was sosososo well worth the wait!!!! This thing is an animal!!!! The tires brake loose at 60(street tires). That 8.5 made a huge difference!!! Man I am so ecstatic. I am completely taken away at the power and sound. It is so street able and easy to drive. Never got over 190'. Stayed around 180 to 180 mostly, lol and I live in florida. So I guess the whole 400cid running hot is defiantly just a old wise tale. Thank you so much to everyone who helped me make this build happen. Especially Ericnova, the parts you recommended were awsome!! They perform as well as they look. Hats off to you guys and free speech!!!!!!!!
