My personal opinion if was mine would be to bring this 383 into the year 2000. Your talking about a motor thats almost 40 years old. Piston theory has changed enough in the last 10 years to make your head spin. Im going to say the same thing for your camshaft. All the designs and theorys have changed. If your wanting more power these are some good things to think about or consider. If you choose to keep your old stuff which is ok too, I would at least update all the electronics, I dont know if that thing has got points but I would start with Electronic ignition, MSD, and coil.
