    Since it is appearently for street use (IE OD trans)i'd stick with the 350 which he already has built. 400's are tricky and sometime run hot on the street, plus they are notoriously thin on the cyliner walls and have to be checked for wall thickness before ever boring the blk.

    Sam are you saying put the 400 crank in the 350 block? Aren't the mains journals larger on a 400 crank than a 350?
