HI David,

I am totally with you. My aim is to improve the 400 engine, which was really not a very good piece of engineering, compared to his predecessors, because of the US emission restrictions.

I will use a camshaft with a duration which should be close to the original cam but with all the benefits of modern camlobe technology. My aim is to have the engine as smooth as possible but with improved low end torque and fuel efficiency.

Regards

Thomas
