I love the 283.Not a big horse power producer.It depends what you want though.For me and a nostalic Impala,I would use a saginaw 3 speed floor shift and a 260 horse 283. A 350 would out perform the 283 in every way and be cheaper.A 283 can make north of 360 horses but it would need some RRRRRs to make the power and torque would be nothing special
what do you want in your car? we will help with ideas
