    Sweet. What are the specs on your 406? I'm planning on building one for my '80. I'd like to go around 9.5:1 with aluminum heads and a solid cam, possibly a roller.

    Very nice! Good to see another fan of the old stuff on here.

    Looks like you used a '73-'87 chassis, I did the same thing on my burb.

    Again, great job.

    to 87"k5boggin. the 2 bolt mian block is a better choice in the 400. if i was gonna turn it up more than 6000 you can splay the caps and make it way stronger than a 4 bolt. with this application i built it for low end torque max of 525 is at 5000. didnt see the need for splaying. i have turned up to 6500 a few times when i first built her doin burnouts and just testin the waters.400's being notoriously famous for not liking above 6000. also unmolested 400 blocks are hard to find. most are already .030 over or cracked.400 blocks prone to cracking. they made a high nickle content block if u can find one.if you find a block that isnt cracked chances are it wont crack. i personally wouldnt go more than .030 over on a 400 although people do. with a 406 being a sought after engine in racing stock blocks are getting scooped up by them. thanks for the killer feedback makes a guy feel good..... oh and it is all on a k5 frame
