anybody run one? I'm thinking of buying one that has some double hump heads. Its the right price and seems like it would be a good motor to run. I've got an '80 Buick Regal, basically IMCA Hobbystock rules but we can run 4-barrel and headers, wider tires. let me know what ya think, THANKS!!!!

theres no replacement for displacement.thats a pretty good combo to run.i've ben using it myself.if it has 6" rods and a solid cam and maybe 11 or 12:1 compression you'll really be in business.

right on, think i'll go ahead and do it, i'm running a 6.20 gear on a 3/8 mile track turning about 6200-6500 with my 350 now, that isn't too much for a 400 is it?
