ok so it sounds like i might go for the 377 then. what type of hp and ft lbs am i looking at with this setup.

400 block, 350 crank, eagle H beam rods, kb hypertonic pistons, afr 180cc heads(should i go for the 195cc?), comp cams 280H cam, edelbrock performer rpm intake, holly 700cfm carb, and 1.6 roller rockers.

how does that sound?

Sounds like youve got a plan. Dont go nuts buying parts just yet though. Find a block and get it checked out/perpared first so youll know where you stand in that aspect.

I wouldnt dare to guess what sort of power levels you could reach with said build, but there are HP calculators that can give you a real good idea. Im sure it would be a screamer.
