    Regretfully - not this year. Wagon is not running and the Fairlane isn't a PowerTour car for us.

    Have a friend that back in the day had a 72 Nova, 350 2 barrel with a 3 speed... took down the local hero in his RA3 Judge with a 4speed... Just sayin' that a lot of variables factor in... derail averted...

    On the surface you will find lots of 400 haters, a deeper dig says don't give away 50 cubes at the hit. Properly done, monster Torque. my head cracked through neglect and 'gonna do it as soon as' That said, I respect your experience (everyone). I am saving my 02 yukon 5.3 for said conversion, but not here, as this was my DD, until it's fixed, I am back in the Yukon.
    We will see, but thank you both.

    Just my opinion Mike, ditch the 400 and install a 350. 400's are prone to overheating and cracked heads are the norm. Or you can spend your money wisely, find a 2wd Tahoe or pickup with any LS, 4.8 or 5.3 and overdrive trans, computer and harness. Conversion parts and mounts are readily available. Theres lots of good information out there to do the conversion right.

    Mike, I don't know the best way to put this, but, I did a search as promised, and found this:

    What did Chevy 882 heads come on?

    Re: 882 heads

    the 882 heads were installed on the 350 ci. and 400 ci engines(400 heads had steam holes). The 882 castings had a double heat-riser passage and were prone to cracking beacuse they ran so hot. If you have these on your engine, get rid of them.Aug 5, 2008

    https://www.google.com/search?q=882+...hrome&ie=UTF-8

    BUT... i did find this interesting article: https://www.motortrend.com/how-to/cc...l-block-chevy/

    I sincerely hope this will help!

    Hoping this post finds you and Sue doing well!
