All this talk about 401's being superior. I find it interesting considering that other than the forged steel crank and rods, it is just a bored/stroked 360. All the problems common to other AMC engines are still present...[poor oiling for one]. It wasn't a quantum leap forward in engine technology....just a larger version of a barely acceptable design. It's only really useful if you want to put a larger c.i. displacement engine in your rig without going through the hassle of a swap.
