    piston volume question

    Thanks Chuck, I've been researching the differences in the 70-71 2V,351C (D) blocks, 250,240 HP and the 72-74 177HP square blocks.

    Planning for an engine rebuild

    "In essence, we'll be building the equivalent of a 9.2-1 compression ratio Boss 351C with a power output of apprximately 400hp. Virtually any 351C block can be used, since there are no differences in materials or strength. In fact the 2 bolt main cap block (part#-D0AZ-6010-C) is just as good as...
