Hey guys I am going to build a 400 SBC for my truck over the winter.

NowI need some help on heads. I have some 062 vortecs 083 tpi heads. Also can get a sets of 193 TBI heads or old school 882 heads.

I like the 400 sbc, but if I remember correctly, wasn't there a problem with overheating from this engine? And I'm thinking something about the wrong headgaskets and the water passages not lining up!

Its only when you change to like a 350 head and don't put the steam holes.
I am running 2 400sbc and never had heating problems.
