Hey Gang - Need to know what is the best way to get 400 to 500 HP out of this 400 small block I have picked up with the original crank. I have read alot of forums and likes & dislikes are 50/50. It seems like I ned 5.7 rods for sure but not sure on the type of heads that are going to be needed?? Any information would be great & I like the details & my budget is around $5000.00.
