Re: 360 Rebuild
simple. find a 360 or 401 core, build it up using quality parts, have it balanced, have the heads rebuilt and ad a good intake and carb.
AMC engines breath REALLY well, you wont see muich gains from head work unless you regularly spin past 5000RPM, ad the wide distributer cap and an MSD ignition, and itll make about as much power as your likely to need.
change the gears in your truck from 2.72 to something closer to 4:1 and youll roast the tires with a six banger...
check out froadin.com website, good AMC info, also AMX files amc car buffs with lots of amc engine info.
not alot of stuff available for these engines thats really buck=performance in the daily driver type scenario.
basic stuff, built right, balanced, and a good ignitiotion is about as good of a sub $2500 AMC engine as you can get.
I love the U.S.A.
