383 stroker with 9.1:1 compression

So I get to talking about my new 406 with this guy at a store. And he's telling me about his 383 in his 72 elky saying that he gets 560 HP to the rear with this motor at 9.1:1 compression no forced air or anything dart heads etc. I'm thinking this guys full of something but he goes on and on. So to the experts out there I would like to know if this guy was blowing smoke up my ars or what. He also said he only payed 10k for this build if its possible I think I got a bad deal money wise for my motor. And those dart heads are the bees knees.

560HP @ the rear wheels in a 3600#-3800# camino should run 124MPH in the 1/4.

The strip never lies. The MPH is directly related tot he power to weight ratio.
Tell him to take it to the track and prove it. If it will run over 118MPH its all good (enough)
450 net HP.

I bet it won't run over 110 MPH. The track never lies.

Sound's like you've been to O'Reilly's.

Now you can get race motor for around 10 thousand dollars that makes 540 horsepower here's link that gives you an idea of what it takes to make at the crankshaft what he claims to be at the rear wheels. It's a Ford Windsor build but you'll get the idea. Ford Racing M-6007-S374W Sealed C-Track Engine If you cruise around their store you'll quickly see that this is cheap engine, the serious stuff costs like a down payment for a Seattle area house.

440whp if you factor in a .18% drivetrain loss. If the guy claims 540 wheel it would have to be in the 650hp range at the crank.

"the guy said it was an L-88" ......"the guy said it was a DZ 302 engine" ..... " the guy said his 283 came out of a vette"..... The guy said it came stock with an LS-7 ....."the guy said it's a special order 4 bolt 327".....on and on and on. If there's no drag strip nearby, tell him to show you the dyno sheet.
