Default Has anyone seen a good 318 build thread/ artical

I now have a spare 318 Looking for ideas. My 318 is punched .30 or .40 over, but it seems to be lacking in the power area.

I need to pull it, and drop the stock 318 in it's place, and build the other one.

Check the speedfreaks forum over on JU. In between the high school idiots there is some intelligent information on building 318/360 Magnums.

I put a mild RV cam and a early 70s 360 intake with a holly 2 barrel. It is a really good engine and i've beat on it hard! Also putting 360 heads would help but I have not bothered cuase the truck runs great.

Go to a 360 and never look back.

If you rea;;y want some Hp, toss in a 4" stroker crank.
