I will get a mild cam, rhs heads, roller rockers, and all said and done it will be a 402cid.

Thanks for the help though I am sure I will need to get the block machined.

Cam: $300
Rockers: $300
Heads: $600
Gaskets & rings etc.:$???
Having fun driven a 402 dodge ram: Priceless
its the longer crank throw that will cause clearance issues. Much like this...



This isn't one of our engines...just an example of having to make rod clearance for the longer stroke.

But...seems like you have it figured out pretty good. Definitely keep us posted on your build. Anything happens with my 5.9...its not going back in as a 5.9

No replacement for displacement!

A lot of things happend since my last post, all in all I decided to not go for the 402
But I just bought an 84 RamCharger for 700 bucks and it comes with a 727 tranny and I am figuring out a way to throw in a 440 BB in it. right now it has a good running 318 its 4x4, its a good hunting truck. The only things that need to be fixed are the steering shaft, possibly steering box, and most deffinately brakes need to be overhauled. I was trying to create a post but for some reason ramforumz wouldn't let me at the moment. btw I still have the 01, I need it to be my runner while I work on this project.

+1 on the stroker part. i would love to do "work" to my 360, but i won't have that kind of cash for a LOOOOOOOOOONNNNG time!!! so, i'll work on other things... like for looks, suspension, etc.

440, eh? i had one in my ole 76 power wagon - factory ta boot. removed it cause it was getting tired and needed a rebuild, but never got around to it. i had put a 400 (what a F'in dawg - GUTLESS) in it's place for the mean time and then i had to sell the PW.
