What do you suggest parts wise to build this engine.
my budget is 4,000.00 i have no core

This engine will be all street. Thanks in advance for the advise.
Heads?
Crank?
Cam?
Pistons? etc.
why 383? You can do an LS swap with a cam upgrade for less than your budget and end up with more power, better mileage, and less maintenance...

Nothing wrong with a 383, but there are a lot better options out there if you're just wanting good torque and power.
