1meancuda After hearing what Roy had to say, I would trade off the 400 and pick up another 350 and set them both up with trans coolers.

cheapo48chev yes i agree that the 350 would work just fine but here is the delima if i stick the th400 into the chevelle that will leave the th350 for my 48 sedan and wouldnt it be easier the fit the 350 into the sedan? or would it be about the same amount of hassle?
my thinking is that the 400 will bolt right to my crossmember in the chevelle and it should be a fairly painless operation what i'm worried about is that the 400 might be really close to the floor on my 48 or do you think it would clear?
or should i just trade for another 350?...

Roy Newton- exprotech Yes I know just how to fix it leave the 350 in the car. It is a lot lighter and will work just as good.It has been proven a lot of times that this is true. Check my firebird on my garage site. It is on the race car pages and is a big block and i use juice. It has been in the car for 8 years. You just have to make a couple mods to the valve body and keep it cool.If you still want to put the 400 in let me know and i will tell you how to fix the passing gear.PS and you are a rat. ROY
