Thanks for the info on the 406 and the "potential" in this engine. I did read several article thanks to your direction on the "406" and it seems to have been a great replacement and beef up to old 1st gen. engines on theri last legs??
more on engine, it has a ton of power it seems and I'm trying to get this engine optomized to run as smooth and efficient as possible. I put on an electronic choke on the holly carb. 4 bbl and it has a Elderbrock victor Jr. Intake manifold.
I had it timed, and I replaced the oil. plugs, ect.. I think I really need to beef up the starter? the car runs well ( I think) and has a bit of smoke at start up that disspears. the exhaust/fumes seems a bit " strong" and the engine idles pretty well and does not bang, but I have no idea what to compare it to? in other words, is it running as it should or not?
I have a rebuild TH350, 373 geared posi, flowmaster exhausts and a 2800 stall converter.
So the big question I have is what can i do to get this engine up to par without killing the pocket book so fast??
thanks for the help again !
