There's nothing DC about the 4.0L. AMC designed that one, too. Chryo's been running AMC's motor for years now. hehe

Does the Buick 350 count as an AMC if it was original, like a 327 should, for example? I am taking "AMC" pretty loosely to indicate a factory installed motor.

No, I wouldn't say that, since B350's first started out when Kaiser still owned Jeep. AMC only installed them for around 1.5 years.

I would change AMC to Jeep, then it would cover any factory installed motor.

Hate toburst your bubble, but those are gross hp figures, not net. When the ratings were changed to net that dropped from 360hp to 250hp. Still a great engine, but none of those 'muscle car ratings' hold true to todays (1972+) SAE ratings.
