but never a 408.

The 409s came back in the 60s, if I recall, in full-size cars. The Beach Boys even wrote a song about it. Real torque monsters.

Could of been a SB 400 bored out .040, works out to 408 CI. I used to have a 72 400 SB bored .030 came out to 406 CI. Cost me half as much to build it as it did a friend to build this .030 over 402 BB

is also an LS2 or 6.0 iron truck block, bored .030" over, with a 4" stroke crank added. This with NOS and an auto got a 2004 auto GTO into the nines with a 9" IRS, along with a few other things.
