This old thread again...

The 383 is a great "bang for the buck", but in my opinion the 400 is better. The 383 is a "poor man's" substitute for the torque the 400 produces. Yet, considering the scarcity of 400 blocks the 383 is an excellent choice. I suppose that, once again, application plays a fair amount of decision.

Now, if torque is what you're after its hard to beat a Buick 455...
