  • 383ci. Magnum vs. 400ci.

    Okay, enough said . We know what the differences are huge " wabos" , tiny " wabos ". Here's my question. Since you can not find 383s readily available but you can still find a 400 here and there. Then why can't you build a 400 up to the samething as a 383 magnum ? What would it take ? Parts wise that is.
    All throttle , no bottle .

    you can put a cut down 440 crank in a 400 block and make a 451, with is a near perfect engine. An Eagle Stoker crank in a 400 block for a 499 ci

      I'd like to do either a 444 , or 451. Hey ! Maybe I can scrounge up some parts around here. JHowever I'd like to try the 400 Magnum first.

        Read an article about doing this build. They said to cut the saddles. Said that was overall the best way to do the build. Comments ?

          I've personally never been involved in having one built, but more a few engine builders have told me that it was an engine Mopar should have built, and it is the least expensive way to build a good race motor.
