Hi There I have just thumbled over a 360 Magnum from a Dodge Durnago 2002, it has run 80000km. The engine is cleaned from all the injection and *** and I will rebuild it in LA-style. anyone who has some ideas how to get more power? I will put it in a Valiant 1960-62, "I have three, one from each of the early year so I really don´t know witch it will be"
There is a lot of different ways to make power from a Magnum engine. Fortunately, since you 're starting with Magnum, you already have decent heads and a block to accept a roller cam.360 buildandAnother article Click Here

Id say the Magnum 360 is the most common sense small block that can be built to a quality spec with a reasonable budget, as already mentioned the factory set up enables a nice roller cam, and the heads already flow well as they are...i believe 400 hp is possible without any work...so id say 450 with the basic head work and a quality manifold and cam, and a decent set of hyper pistons to get comp up a little.Ive considered it myself as i have a set of Edelbrock Magnum specific heads and a matching air gap manifold, but I also have a machined 30th over 318 magnum block and like the idea of seeing what could be had from that.Id say go roller cam and keep the heads etc for a sweet 360 magnum, a set of decent hypereutectics and a magnum specific manifold from edelbrock, cam from either Hughes or comp cams..use the great factory 1.6 ratio rockers, get a holley 670 etc and build a great streeter with id imagine an easy 400/450 HP.
