For some reason I can't upload the before picture of the 400 i had in it when this pic was taken but here'* the 400 rebuilt. It'* bored and stroked to 468 cubic inches, forged pistons, Aluminum Edlebrock preformance ran air IV heads and holly 770 carb. It'* getting stainless steel headers, magnaflow exhaust and electric cut outs. The T400 tranny got rebuilt as well and matching it up with a new 12 bolt rear end with 373 gears.
