Re: A few engine questions

The longer stroke is good for torque, as you probably know. The de-stroked 400 (377) is a winding machine. The 377 could probably put out some serious torque too, but thatīs like missing the point [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif[/img]. Itīs a racers engine for high rpms.
Try to find a nice sb 400 instead, maybe even as a shortblock. Then you could add whatever heads & intake etc. you want. Thatīs what I wouldīve done if I could do it again [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif[/img]. And if I had the $$ Iīd go with a small blower (4:71 or 6:71) instead of a NOS shot
