Help With Buying a Chevy 383 Stroker

Hey guys,

I am going to remove the 327 in my 68 Camaro and replace it with a 383 Stroker. I think with everything out there that is the best and most HP for the money. I would like to by the complete long block ( I think) my only requirement is that I have hydraulic lifters. What should I be looking for? In both the engine and company. And above all who do you recommend? Can I realistically get something for $3,000.00?

Any and all comments and recommendations are appreciated. What about freight? What guarantees do I look for? I live in Maryland.

Thanks
Jim

Here is a reasonable long block from a company called Revolutionary Performance. I am sure that you could substitute the heads for some vortecs if you wanted to. It would probably cost a little less, and would perform better in a street application. You can add a hyd roller cam and lifters to the combo for $400.

Budget Stroker Upgrade SBC 383 2 bolt main block, Eagle cast steel 3.75" crank, OEM 5.7" rods, KB claimer 9.8:1 pistons, cast rings, hydraulic or solid flat tappet cam, double roller timing set, new balancer and flywheel, hardened pushrods, new OEM rockers, Pro Topline or Dart Platinum Pro1cast iron 180cc runner heads with 2.02/1.60 stainless valves, HP springs, locks and seals $2799

I second Revolutionary Performance. He built my engine and you will not find a more honest and technically competent engine builder. His customer service is second to none and he is very competitive. Give Daryl a call!

if you change your mind about the long block you can get some fantastic price's on ebay motors(i like racers outlet)if you buy all your parts individually.i'll admit that revolutionary has good prices.i am infact surprised but i still think you can do better or as well and have more choice's.kevin at racers outlet is top notch.there's also dirttrack thunder,cnc motorsports,midwest motorsports.professional products has knock off rpm air gap manifolds for about half the price as edelbrock.check it out.

i bought my 383 kit from whites performance in kingsport tennisee, got everthing but the block. i got the pistons rings, rods, king race barrings,crank,balancer,flexplate, they are a engine shop so they ground and rebalanced the crank so i didnt have to notch my block for clearance. it costed 795 dollars. the crank is a scat9000 crank also. i bought a set of complete aluminum procomp head 2.02/1.60 valves 210cc runners for 650 dollars for both. ive had alot of sbc and this is the most power ive ever had. check them out i dont know the website off hand but they do have one. they also sell complete engine at really good prices
