Do you want Power? Get a set of 351C-4V heads on that M block. If it
is true what they say about the heads being interchangeable. Then add
a suitable intake and headers.

Any AOD will fit your 351C block. There is only one AOD, but two tail
pieces. One for 2x4 and another for 4x4s. I would pay for a premium rebuild
job with blue printed components. It should stand up to your use. I don't
know whether the lockup torque converter will take that kind of usage, but
it is not necessary for use of an AOD and a regular C4 torque converter can
be used.

Subject: Tunnel Ram Combo ??


What's the "Lists" thoughts on tunnel rams ??,
gas mileage is not great with the 460 anyway. So I saw this combo in
the summit catalog offering a Weiand tunnel ram w/450 cfm holleys for
$560.00 and w/600's for $602.00. I'm not building this motor for a daily
driver, but more for a toy. I'm not real sure about how these setups are
to maintain, if there more a pain in the butt, or worth the price.
I'm sure somebody's had experience with them. let me know the good and
