Then settle for 450 hp and about 8 grand to do it reliably. Or, you can spend way less, get the same 450 hp....and then do it again next year.

Most good streetable 383's put out around 420 hp and 460 tq. How about you do a forum search on 383's? I swear to god every day that I am going to stop spoon feeding posters like you but here is an example of a 383 that will tear apart the transmission and rear end of your Camaro in a heartbeat:

All will be answered if you're interested in asking yourself the right questions. Good luck.

For a cheap build stroking a vortec 5.7 or a lt1 5.7 is probably the best bet. if you want carbed go vortec for efi go lt1. Either one can be rebuilt into a 383 with a cam swap for less than 2 grand if you have a good core, which will run around 300-700 dollars depending on your market.

Either route can get you a very reliable 450hp and streetable manners if done properly.

Here's a sample for a 600hp 383, grab your wallet.

All forged rotating assembly, no cast crank will cut it. $2000, you'll need special pistons with the valve notches cut for 60/40 valve spacing
11.5-1 compression target
AFR 227cc heads $2000
valve springs $200
shaft rockers $1100
big solid roller cam $400
Good solid roller lifters $700
big chromoly pushrods $200
roller timing chain $75
gaskets $100
MLS head gaskets to fine tune the compression $150
oil pump $50
Head stud kit $150
Victor intake $175
big 850cfm carb $750
MSD distributor $225
plugs/wires $75
stroker oil pan, Milodon 30909 works good $275

total $8625 and I was being generous

Builds like this NEVER go together without hiccups. You have to mock everything up and check clearances many times. You'll end up notching pistons, moving the cam around, ordering different gaskets, swapping parts, etc, etc.

To handle that kind of power you'll need big headers too. Little 1 5/8th blackjack headers won't do. Then you'll grenade that stock 7.5" 10-bolt rearend in 5 minutes. A 700r4 won't cut it either unless it's been totally gone through. This motor won't like to lug around under 2k, it will want a big converter to be happy.

I think you are in over your head a little.
