Re: 304 to 401?
The 401 will work fine in either stock or modified form. I believe they make about 210 hp stock, (but don't quote me) The biggest problem with building any of the AMC motors is $$$. You can build a comparable GM 350 for 1/3 to 1/2 the price of building an AMC. We built a 350 hp 360 for my last jeep and had almost $4000 in it when we got done, where as, I built my current 275 hp 350 for under $1500. I realize that I ended up spending about another $1000 to make the 350 fit my Jeep, but it's nice to know I can walk into any parts store and expect to find any part I need for it now. Just my $.02.
