    Makin\' Torque

    Hey there. With all the aftermarket folks advertising power in horsepower terms, how should one find good tourque building bolt ons. Or in other words, how should one go about building a good, low end torquey machine?


    Oops, I mean it's a 1977.

    If you are running a 400c.i. motor then there is your torque monster to begin with...400's are known for the stock torque they produce... Also headers are a quick low end bolt on...Also if you redo your exhaust stay with a 2.25 pipe rather than 2.50 the larger the pipe the more HP but less torque there is a decent medium....Also if you really care to dive in a new cam depending on your setup can do wonders....My final suggestion, and hey its a bolt on :) either a NV4500 or SM465 manual tranny :)
