Re: 400 build
Thanks much for the details on your car. That's what I'm ;looking for. I do love big inch big blocks, but wanna stick with the small block in this car. I would like to go the 434 route if possible, but really wanted to swap over my 197 aluminum heads, Vic Jr, keep the MSD stuff, run the slicks I have with the 4.10 gear, all of that to keep costs down, but maybe with the bigger build and more radical solid roller cam, those heads wouldn't be big enough.
With either block, I plan to go with stroker setup, so if I kept my current 350, my 197 headds would probably be OK for now. They are JEGS (Canfield) heads, and while I like their performance, they have some issues in quality I think.
If I went to 406, 421, 0r 434, would that make my 197 heads senseless to use? Guess i could sell them and use that money toward bigger ones.
Well, I'll quit rambling now haha. Any other opinions welcome. Thanks guys
