I'm currently helping my son build his first 401.....probably settling on the Wiseco + .045   Is anyone a dealer with IN STOCK?  I'm unfamiliar with DSS and Racetech.....but will gladly listen!  Thanks!

Was I ever astonished when I tore down the 390 in my 68 AMX. It had 401 rods and pistons at .040. I was told to make that work, customs pistons are required with a different wrist pin location. At that juncture, I acquired a std bore 68-69 390 bare block from Galvin's and went a different route.
