If you want to keep your 283 original. Try puting in a 3/4 cam one in the 318to418 lift that will up your power. or open your wallet and build a jet engin.! <img src="graemlins/pimp.gif" border="0" alt="[pimp]" />

A set of larger valve heads, such as a set off of a late model 305 would help with flow and keep compression up. Add a dual plane after market intake and 500-600 cfm Holley carb, and a cam in the 215 duration range. Last, A set of 1.5 inch tube hedders will help on the exhaust side.
