Is this big Cleveland a good choice for a torqer motor for a 2200 # street rod<hr></blockquote>
Yes, it is definitely a torquer motor.
Modifications are the same as the 351C, except the 351M/400 has a taller deck height..

The 400m is basically a 351c with a bigger
stroke,but was way more reliable.When they got
rid of 390's in trucks they replaced them with
the 400m.These engines were considered wheezers
cuz they only made about 165 hp,but they had tons
of torque.We built one in a 1978 ltd thet whooped
up on local mustangs(in the early 90's).
Hot Rod had a good story on how to build basically
400 hp/400+lbs. foot of torque out of these
babies.check it out.</strong><hr></blockquote>
