View Full Version : 400ci V8 good for anything other than a boat anchor?

I got offered a 75ish 3/4 ton 4x4 with a 400 and 727 for $200.

I did a little looking into the engine (very little) and found if you get a 440 crank it makes a nice 451 stroker, but thats getting into a bunch of money when I'd rather have a 440 or a 5.9 CTD in there.

any opinions on it? Better or worse idea than rebuilding my 360 for a good engine until I go buckwild and build something stupid? [36]
