Okay a new post. It has been a while since I posted a question on building a T Bucket. My questions have to do with using a 318 and a 904 transmission. My uncle has two complete motors and transmission. One is in a 1974 Charger that is a parts car and the other is in a Dodge Ram Van. I would say the year is late 70's or into the 80's. My first question is on the Hot Rod Magazine build. Can I really get 400 HP out of a 318? If so is there any flaws in their build? Could I also add a six pack setup that would work on a 340? I would only add the six pack set up due to the look. I'm not sure how much horse power it would truly add. Would there be a way of getting just a bit more horse power if I were to tweak the Hot Rod Magazine build? Also torque? With that horse power increase what would I need to do to the 904 transmission? My last question is. How short of a frame could I go with if I use a 318? My goal on frame size is 96" and to not exceed 101". I like the more compact look. My goal is a 1960's look. I think the more I dig into doing a build I'm leaning for a 60's look and a late 60's would be fine with me. Torque Thrust rear wheels. Not sure what front wheels. What would you go with? What would be the advantage of going with a model A frame? I'm thinking of not channeling the T Bucket when I do it. I know I would not lose the little leg room and I kind of dig the look. Thanks all.
