[QUOTE=droptoplarry]I understand that the 400 has steam ports instead of "water jackets" in the heads, which I would think would lead to cooling issues. An old gear head rebuilt a 72 chevy 400 for me when I was in So. Cal. back in the late 70's told me there is no replacement for displacement when I had considered selling that motor and stroking a 350. I guess it really is each persons preference. If I had the money to spend, I'd like to see how a Hardcore 454 small block would push my droptop down the road [/If it goes fast, it can be made to go faster...]
