How many really built a 400 motor and have it in their ride, and not heard it from someone else?
The ones I know, no need to reply. [/B][/QUOTE]


I have NOT posted on this............it is all kind of silly....

Build what you want and just OUTRUN the rest.......

I have build 383's and 400's and had them in my ride.
I also built a 434.........Little M block and a Eagle crank

I prefer a 350 in my 32 Roadster.......
I know that the larger engines make more torque and Horsepower....but in a light car like my 32 (2240 lbs)........the 350 is quicker. It revs higher, faster and is easier to HOOK UP. The 350 lacks the low end of the 3.75 and 4 inch stroke engines and LEAVES better.........then revs quicker and higher once I get it HOOKED.......
