    First off glad to hear that another guy on here is into the big lift/no flex catergory! I have a 9" from Superlift and love it so good luck with swaping that on.

    What gears are you planning to run with those 42's, 5.13's or a touch lower?

    Oh, and why a 400? Don't they have cooling problems? Don't you think you'd be better off with a 383 or go for it and put a bb in?

    Yukon just released a 5.38:1 ratio ring and pinion set for the 14 bolt FF. That is as deep as you can go with your axles.

    With 5.38's, 42" tires, 3rd gear and transfer case in high it'll take 3,013rpm to do 70 so with friction say 3,100. Not that I'm an expert but if you plan on keeping that beast street worthy and not having overheating issues you might want to go a touch higher. Maybe 5.13's it'll drop it down to 2,872.

    Just something to think about if you plan on driving it to the trails and such.

    Regardless of what engine you have what I'm saying is it's pretty high on the RPM side of things if you plan to drive it everywhere. Regardless of what engine you have in there keep that in mind.

    Talk to guys like branndon and the others on here that run bb caddy engines and you'll see that it's not like a rice rocket, they don't like to run at 4,000+ rpm forever. Just my $0.02, take it for what you want.

    o i know my friend now worries but i will also be blueprinting and balancing this engine so my rpm range will be alot higher then most of these engines and the 4000 + range is uaually valve float time lol thas for sure but i def agree with ya

    Yeah I was a little worried, figured I'd been on summer vacation too long and i couldn't read anymore.

    lol

    All joking aside it really does make it hard for us to read, doesn't have to be perfect but maybe some periods and all the letters would help.
