cheap 400 I built for a friend. 1978 monte carlo, 20 plus miles to the gallon when right foot is restrained and 14.1 1/4 mile times with 2.73 gears and white wall radials.turbo 350 with shift kit,stock converter.
Bone stock short block rebuilt with cast pistons and static balanced,stock heads.Mild 430 lift flat tappet hydraylic cam,street master manifold, 625 carter carb,1 5/8 primary headers,2 1/2 " dual exhaust not mandrel bent. no where near 400 HP,but a tonne of torque. tire melter

This sounds awesome. I am building a stock 400 with a 488/510 cam and 2.73 gears and a powerglide. 750 quadrajet aluminum intake stock heads stock bottom. I hope mines sees somewhere in the 15mpg range if my right foor is "restrained".
