    Thanks Jim. I just sent the 64 off with a friend for off body bodywork and Paint. I've got a 64 389 from a manual, a Muncie m21 and a tri power intake. I'm already over budget. Plan was to just get car up and running....but with bodywork and pant plans have changed.
    I want the think to run nice and be a "daily driver" 400 ho or just a bit more would be fine.
    Any ideas? Motor is apart and getting ready to be sent to machine shop

    Have read many of your post. I have rebuilt 400 and would like you to look at dyno number and tell me if it will be good on street and what gears to run?
