Your sig says 351M, correct me if I'm wrong, but I thought the M shared bell housing pattern with the 429/460 as well? Any reason your not considering that engine?

my truck has a 351m, i want to start building a 400 while im driving it. I may go with a 460 but i dont want to revamp my exhaust and anything else comes along. The 351m is not enough,the 400 will do all i want plus not add nose weight.

I can't imagine the weight being that big a factor, there is only about 150# difference between the 460 and the 400m.

As they say, there is no replacement for displacement........

Now if they could just do the 30 packs with the bigger (16oz) pistons in stead of the 12oz ones.....

You can get 18 cylinder packs with tall boys... 288 cubic ounce displacement. My 30 cylinder, although smaller pistons displaces 540...

i drag raced for 28yrs,the last 7 in a pro class,weight is everything to me,150lbs is a lot. A mild built 400 can produce as much tqr as a stock 460, built with the right parts a bit more. Ive had smaller NOS engines putting out more HP than some of my lager C.I. (706ci) NOS engines. Displacement is not always the deciding factor.
