    The general rule of thumb is to start at .120 thou. But it ultimately depends on how light ur rods and pistons are then drill holes in the counter weights to balance it. If u take to much off u will need to add Mallory metal which gets expensive. Kim

    Then why not build a 408 from a 360? Oh ya, udont have the big block appeal then. I wouldn’t build a Sb either. Kim
