Re: I picked up a new truck a few weeks ago.

Hot Rod managed 425HP and 450lb/ft (sounds like a heck of a towing engine) from a 400M a while back--for about $2500, with single exhaust, catalytic converters, a 2bbl carb, and 100% Kailfornia smog-legal. Toss some of the new stuff they used (like a $250+ carb, a $150 intake, & a new MSD ignition system) for swap-meet stuff (and use a dirt-cheap 351C intake with spacer plates) and you can probably have 400HP for under $2K. Try THAT with a 460~
