I've had decent luck with 350 kits from Summit. They're made for mild builds and are fairly complete. Just add labor and stir.

Summit shows re-ring kits but have to phone for pricing. they don't show an engine kit for a 400 sbc but they sell Fel-Pro rebuild kits for 400sbc for $369.These come with pistons but not crank & rods.
