Exhaust crossover into a single HX35 turbo where the battery would normally go, relocate it to behind the cab. Single entry onto a hat, boost reference fuel pressure... you're laughing!

Down at the machine shop i found a set of nice closed chamber bare heads ,my valves will go straight in with a bit of re co from olm8 so i stripped the big opens again not really sure what to do with these maybe just keep em aside for a while0c57e74f11ade7aab5506ebbbc4c0a4c.jpg

it says by that calcuator that a 400 has a 3.75 stroke ? i thought ford 400 had a 4 inch stroke ?
No that site is for Pontiacs, the sizes on the left are to autofill the specs for various Pontiac engines. You need to manually enter bore, stroke and cc, etc to get the right figure for a 400 Ford. It should come in at around 402 cubes if entered right (stock bore)

i like using the summitt one,i came in at 10.1.1 with a fair bit down the hole and 58cc head,im guessing 20 to 28 cc for the piston.

I ran those specs through the Wallace Racing one, it came in at 8.68:1. Are you sure the piston has that much dish?

 

Edit: just ran the Summit one, it came in at 8.73:1

 

It assumes that your head gasket is the same as the bore, which it never is. The Wallace Racing one lets you input the gasket diameter to allow for the extra volume there. I put in 4.100" as that's closer to what they are.
