Re: Info wanted on building 360 with power
If you are looking for true performance from your 360 I would go with a set of heads from a 360 or 401 that was cast in 1969-1973. These heads had large valves and small combustion chambers, they were also the Higher torc adn HP engines built by AMC. If you use a set of these heads then you will need to buy an intake for that year model since the intake bolt holes are a little different. The setting of the valves will be different also, instead of wrenching then down to 20lb you will need to adjust them like a chevy(fully adjustable), you can also run screw in studs with roller rockers from a chevy as well. I built the motor in my wifes jeep this way and it is a real power house. I used the 1969 AMX 360 heads with screw in studs, crane roller rockers, Eldebrock performer cam, performer intake and carb, Taylor plug wires, Accel super coil, and headers. Just my 2 cents.
