well long story short Jr put a hole in the nova's piston and scored the bore of his 350.

since ive had my 400 long enough that if it was my brat it'd almost be legal to drink. its time it got some use.

71 "511" 4 bolt 400 virgin bores from a 70kish 72 monte.

probably put his forged 350 crank and 6" alum rods in it for a nicely oversquare ~377

since im such a nice asshole he even got all my parts ive bought over the years...i was forged rods and crank away from a nice 10to1 400 with a sweet vintage MTS draw through carburated turbo setup for the corvette/Fbody



well at least its going to a good home...till he blows it up

That draw through kit is old school. Looks like a Turbosonic style setup. Let me guess the turbo's probably good for what 400HP tops on anything bigger than a 267? I have Mook's on center 66 here. If it had a carbon seal, they'd go together pretty well I would think for a lightly warmed up 305 or 350.

made by martin turbo systems, produced from 78-82ish iirc
the intake manifold is an upper/lower setup for drawing from an oem position spreadbore carb. the kit came with a sweet holly spreadbore made specifically for the kit
i took it off a 79 vette that had it since new. 6 psi on a 350.
cant find any info on the rayjay aerospace turbo but from the size id bet it is around 450ish, probably closer to 400 as you said since its a wet flow setup which is far from ideal

i had wanted to put it in my indyjeep. 400/th400/d20/d44&30

alas it will probably never happen...probably should find some ratrod guy that would give it a sweet home
