383 vs 400

Personally, I would base the decision on 2 factors ..... what equipment I had on hand (blockwise) and what I was going to use the engine for (truck, hot rod , street/strip) ..... (400's especially 4 bolt ones tend to crack ) With the advent of excellent aftermarket blocks permitting up to 454 ci from a "small" Chev., you've just got to ask yourself how much do you want to spend to get where you want to go .
