good economy and be able to run on pump gas? Will a 396 w/ 9.6:1

compression get better economy than a 454 w/ 9.6:1 compression? How can

I get over 400 horse power out of a 396 w/ a mild cam?



Thanks
So is this the same 396 that you lied about in your other thread?? Oh, I'm looking at buying this motor is it priced right? Then it winds up being your motor and you're trying to sell it in the forums.
