I am thinking about swapping my 350 for a big block. I was thinking about a 396. Im sure some of you guys have done this swap and I am looking for suggestions. I have my eye on a 396 that is currently in a mid 70's pickup at the local salvage yard. I'm sure it needs an overhaul. Any suggestions on a good streetable rebuild combo? Heads, cam, etc? So far everybody I run into and bring it up with say its not worth it. They say the bb is to heavy and I would need to beef up my front end and that I could get plenty of power out of the 350. There is just something that fires me up about having a bb under the hood. The car is a 72 ss and I have replaced most of the front end, springs, balljoints, tierods, etc. I know there is about 200 # difference but I dont plan on racing it. Just looking for a good streetable bb. Any suggestions or opinions would be greatly appreciated either for or against the swap. Thanks guys!!
