Re: sbc 400 what heads?
For a 400 that seems like a small cam. Granted mine is a hyd roller but has .530 lift. I would think that you could get better heads to let her breathe. A 200 cc runner would be great. What about Brodix Iron Killers what are they like price wise?
I run a dished piston because I have a 64cc chamber. Still puts me in around 9.7:1 or so. I also used a 5.7 rod but I also got a small base circle cam to clear those rods and rod bolts.
