I think he's referring to mpfi, multi port fuel injection. Not really sure what that post is asking or about though.

You mean MPFI, Multi-port Fuel Injection bud lol... Nothing wrong with the 383 but I'd check out some of the new Edlebrock FI kits over the Ram Jet.

GMPP made a Ramjet 350, but not a Ramjet 383. Unless some dealerships takes an HT383 or ZZ383 and drops a Ramjet intake on it and recalibrates the MEFI ECM?

I would be tempted to buy a crate ZZ383 or HT383 and buy a seperate intake manifold and use a car/truck PCM to run it all.

Ramjet crate engines are overpriced IMO. They are just a $2000 Vortec 350 with a $500 intake manfiold on them with a 196║/206║ 0.431/0.451" 109║LSA roller cam in them.

The stock Vortec 350's cam is 191║/196║ 0.412"/0.428" on a 111║LSA

I found this Ramjet 383 for $8400 430hp/430 lb/ft torque. Heck I'd way rather have a brand new LS3 with controller for $500 less, and enjoy 120 more hp than the 383. The 525hp LS3 is a much better deal.

I forgot the link of the $8400 Ramjet 383 engine that makes 430hp/430lb/ft torque.
JRM 383 Street Series shortblock with GM Performance Ramjet EFI KarlPerformance.com

I agree some of those GEN 3/4 engines need to owrk on their looks.

Good luck, let us know how it turns out.

peace

"looks" aside the LS intakes are actually a VERY good design.

But if form matters more than function then you can just swap on an edelbrock intake

Edelbrock.com - Electronic Fuel Injection - Pro-Flo« XT - Chevy LS1

They also make many many different valve cover options and you can remote mount the coils if that's your thing.


Personally I think the looks of a much better designed engine speak for themselves- why you would want to make it look like an outdated design is beyond me.
