After messing with my 400 for years and never getting better then 7-8mpg I built up a 460 and threw it in. My 460 has 3 times the Hp and 4 times the TQ and my mileage jumped to 10-12mpg. No one will ever convince me those 351m/400 motor are any good.
Both my 400 and 460 have similar mods I just truly believe the stock motors are garbage and do not respond well to mods. Now all the 351m/400 lovers will jump on me and show links to 500HP M/400 motors but I don't care. It's far easier to get power and milage out of a 460 IMO.
