First of all how heavy is your car? What length track do you run on? What RPM are you willing to turn? I personally would build a 6in rod 350 .030 over bore gives you 355 in. and .060 is a 360.The other questions I asked are to deside camshaft and cyl. heads.I also didnt catch what carb, you can run that makes a difference also...Hope this helps a little....Towman

Sounds like youve got a pretty good start But I dont know the specs on your cam.Where do you seem to be lacking power and are you sure your not buzzing the tires? What tire do you run? whats your final gear ratio? And what is the role out on rear tires? Just trying to help....Towman

400 block, 327 crank and the longest rod you can fit in it.....or better yet, a 351W ford, 6.200 rods, +.030 302 piston shaved .055" and SVO "N" 351 heads. did i mention i was a ford guy? lol. it's the tits.

I raced against a guy that ran that 400 with the 327 crank had awsome power but he couldnt keep the rods in it so he was easy to beat hooked to the wrecker. Do yourself a favor and stay away from all that high dollar after mkt.4 letter word stuff some people just have to be different no matter what the cost notice I said different not better haha stick with the good old 350 and buy a little better parts and it will turn the RPM and live forever....Towman
