Your guess would be as good as ours. Get some numbers from the front block pad, that might give you some idea.

As far as a build sheet for the Corvette, you need to find a VIN decoder online and go from there.

I never saw or heard of a 400 sb in a Nova, not from the factory anyway unless you mean TH400. We drove 77-78 Nova Police package Nova's but they were all equiped with 350 engines. Pretty much slugs to so the hp rating couldn't have been too high. The last Chevy Police car I used was the '96 Caprice 9C1 package with the 260 hp LT1. This car was very nice, would have ran circles around the Nova.
