Default 410 and Cruiso

So what do you guys think if I were to 410 my 390 would the 1964 cruiso hold up just fine. Obviously when I pull the engine I will have the trans overhauled. Just dont know if its worth it for a C6 transplant just to 410 it. It is overall just a cruiser but hey if you have to pull it why not a few more ci.

I'd say you're OK if you don't pound on it too hard. You know about the flexplate, right?

Your C-6 can easily handle the torque. Are you staying with a flat tappet cam?

Roger on the flexplate. Not sure learning about the fe and trying to lock down what I want to do before I tear into it. From I hear 428 crank and plate 410 pistons.

Default 410 ...

As long as you don't pound on it excessively should be fine. Mike

Your tranny will be the mid-case MERC-O-MATIC Multi-Shift, which will more than hold up to a modified 410.


He used to specialize in FORD-O-MATIC and can modify your valve body for performance. Also ask him about the case strengthening kit.
