well I agree that some of the 400 design was a compromise and yes it wasn't designed as a performance motor. The saimesed cylinder design no doubt was a compromise at the time how ever it one of those quirks of fate it kinda did turn out to be an advantage in that i made the block more rigid which is probably part of the reason for its continued use in some more modern engines
