No, bought the parts at the local autoparts. at the time, i though my block was a 350 so i requested 350 parts. when the engine was complete and operational i noticed i did not have the power i should have an a 350 so i inquire using the engine block id number and to my disappointment, found out the block is a 283. all the parts fit well and the engine runs smooth, but no where near the power of a 350. very low torque. you might wonder why i did not know, it is because i had just purcharsed the car from a friend. the car had 350 emblems which mislead me.
