Re: Whats a 401 worth?
401 has forged crank and rods, and a bit more Cubic inches than a 360, alot more cool factor, and more power, also more expensive to rebuild ( the master kit was about $100 more than a 360 last I checked), and the forged crank and piston rods are expensive if you have to replace any parts, but how often do you need to replace a crank or rods?
the 360 is way more common, plenty of power for most folks, and slightly cheaper to rebuild, and WAY cheaper to buy a crank or piston rods for ( easier to find used parts than 401)
one thing to consider if smog and legality is important for you, the 360 was used up until 1991, I think the 401 was dropped in 79 or so?
