406 is the only way to go. If you cant drive or set up a car though a 355 or 383 will be easier to go in circles with.

I prefer the 383 hands down,very capable little engines.

2 or 4 barrel carb,manifolds or headers, car weight, compression ratio, vacuum rule etc. all make a difference in choice especially because of the 1/2 mile track.

Sorry, 4 barrel with any intake, any header and 3250 weight. Also no vaccum rule, both tracks wouldnt know if you were running a diesel but they do know what flat tops and vortec or aluminum heads are. wish we had better tech but a little is better than nothing

Hey Luke, my son asked who you were. He said you started well behind me at Jackson last week and made it thru all the cars I did to catch me before I backed off and waved you guys all by.

I think Ive got all my issues tracked down. Bad dist. Carb had dirt in air bleeds or something like that my carb guy said. which caused it to go rich above 5k.

If I get my truck part today I may come up there tomorrow. Ive had some good runs up there and even finishes but even those I had stuff wrong, bent toe etc. Id like to get the monkeys off my back up there and just have a run to the end of a feature.

With the car weighing that much, I would go with 406 1st choice 383 2nd choice.

Too hot, I changed my mind. My dodge is still having issues. Good luck hopefully they get some more cars that were maybe there last week.

Bobo said youve had only 7-9.. yikes.
