With so many proven 600+ HP 383s and 400s why does everyone react like it's Voodoo when someone asks? Or that it will cost a mint. Or that it won't be streetable?

My 383 made just short of 600HP, now with the 434 SHP bottom I have a very streetable 640 at the crank on pump gas. I have Airwolf 220e heads, 254/259*@0.050", .644/.660" 110* solid roller cam, ported Air Gap intake. SHP block with forged bottom. 11:1. Powerjection III fuel injection.


Here's a good combo similar to mine but with a hydraulic roller for the street on 93 oct. 640HP 400SBC.

Bryce sells it turn key, pan to carb with dizzy for $9K. You can build one yourself for a couple grand less.
