    295/50/15 on the back of '73 Charger

    There was an old issue of one of the Mopar mags years ago where they did a complete suspension upgrade on a 71-74 Charger and they ran 295/50/15 on the rear and 265/50/15 on the front. Mopar muscle or high performance Mopar can't remember which. I am pretty sure they ran 8" on the front but...

    Opinions wanted of the ballpark value on this 73 B5 in/out A57 400 #'s car

    Beautiful! Buy it!! My first car was a 73 400 Charger. Non Rallye but with buckets and console.Mine was flat hood and had Rallye wheels. I would probably trade/sell my big block duster to find one just like it in this condition.

    Yet another 440 build

    Sounds like a well matched setup that wouldn't need a lot of gear.Don't really need any more than 10.0-1 with that camshaft.

    Flowmaster American Thunder Super 40 vs. Pypes Street pro exhaust

    I would opt for the race pro over the street pro.I would even run the turbo pro over the street pro.

    Going to purchase a set of 15" tires for my 67

    FWIW I see Uniroyal and BFG throw belts in tires quicker than any other brand. Some are old and some are not. Now potholes will hurt any tire if the impact is large enough. Most of our old cars are stored inside and they seem to not dry rot and crack as quick as a tire that is left outside.

    Going to purchase a set of 15" tires for my 67

    Mastercraft is owned and built by Cooper. I have sold both with no issues. Matter of preference on the trade pattern.

    Headers - mufflers - want to add glass packs

    Try it and see. If it is still too loud then change mufflers and you will already have built in resonators. Please give us some before and after sound clips if you do.

    Headers - mufflers - want to add glass packs

    I have a set of the purple horniest that bolt to header flanges. I will use them for the header install on my 72 Newport and to drive to the exhaust shop. To the OP if you don't want "loud" consider swapping mufflers.

    Headers - mufflers - want to add glass packs

    Are those flowmaster mufflers? I can say I have never seen anyone try to use a resonator (glass pack or otherwise) with flowmasters. I would expect it to change the tone but have no idea how it will turn out.

    Engine oil?

    It may very well be. I can purchase local and am not running high spring pressures with 2 hyd flat tappet cams so I doubt I will have any issues. If I ever build the stroked rb and don't run a roller cam I may opt for a different oil.

    Engine oil?

    No extra zinc needed with Vr1 IMO.

    1978 400

    It depends on how many miles are on it. An overall re seal with new freeze plugs not a bad idea. New timing chain set would be high on my list. After that how far are you willing to go? Valve job and some porting on the heads? Milling some for compression? Might as well replace that cast iron...

    Engine oil?

    Lucas hot rod oil in 10w30. I also have Valvoline VR1 in 10w30.

    Cylinder heads.

    I would imagine with stock rocker arms stock pushrods "should" work. If you run roller rocker arms then you will need different length pushrods.

    Help Me Complete My 383 Engine Build

    It all depends on what you want and how much you are willing to spend. Finding a 400 (or 383) block to build over time while you can still drive yours is worth a thought. A nice 451 (or 432) would play well with what you have.
