You cam make over 400 hp from a 283. Do you want a radical,cantankerous,not so street friendly engine with rough idle,that performs like a daily driver 350/383? Do you like a 250/275 horse fun to drive,zippy 283 that sounds a lot tougher than it is? A 220 horse 283 that purrs,gets decent mileage and looks era correct?
or that 350/383 mentioned above?
