I was given a 1971 Caprice Classic two dr h/t by my neighbors widdow. The car has "400" emblems on the front 1/4s. Many people have told me that the engine is the 400 SB but the 400 SB for that year only had 245 advertised hp, but on the air cleaner there is a silver sticker that reads "400" and under that it reads 300HP. I read in the owners manual that only the 402 had 300hp for this year. So I guess my question is, is this the 396 BB or a 400 SB??? The reason I want to know this is because I want to put it in my '67 Chevelle. What kind of upgrades are there for this engine?
