I have a 1965 283 that I built for a class in engine machining. Great class. I had a lot of fun and learned a lot. I rebuilt the powerpack heads with a 3 angle grind and new guides, Z28 springs and valves. The block is bored 30 over. Both the block and the heads have been decked. The crank has been ground and balanced with the pistons and rods. It has new lifters and pushrods. New oil pump. The heads have been mildly ported and gasket matched. The block was line honed. New ARP connecting rod bolts. New pistons and rings. The cam is similar to a Summit 1103. Double roller timing chain and gears. I have the stock 2 barrel manifold for it or a newer EGR 4 barrel from a 75 Corvette. Stock distributor

First question is how much hp and torque do you think it will make? And second how much is it worth?

I was going to put it into my 40 Plymouth pickup but I think I will stay with the orignial rebuilt 6 I have for it so I need to sell it.
