    I'm building a 400 ram air 3 engine and I'm looking to get 450-475 horse power. I'm wondering what I would need to do to the engine and add to it for that horse power. I'm not very experienced in this so bear with me. All I have is the block,the casting is a 9799914 2 bolt main with 330 horse power.

    Bought my 84 Z28 3 days ago. Great car. Straight body. Has some things that need worked on though. Put it on the lift, and the owner before me put flex pipe midway on the exhaust and sounds obnoxious and stupid. Thinking about just getting an adapter, don't have the funds for headers and full...
