Andrew Cornwell, Virginia Beach, VA, 1966 Dodge Charger

Were all 413’s Max Wedges or could you get a standard 413?

Andy,

99.9% of all 413s were low-perf “station wagon” engines with very mildcams, log manifolds, etc. There were also some long-ram and otherstreet-performance 413s (e.g.: Chrysler 300). But with the ready availabityof larger-bore junkyard blocks (i.e., 400 and 440 CID) there’s very littlevalid reason to build a non-maxi 413, unless it’s for a dead-stock 100-pointrestoration.
