So, im thinking of junking the 350 in my 87 monte ss and going to a 383 or 427 small block...but the other day my brother reminds me he has the 283 and glide from his 66 impala and that is was a beast of a motor. I have been wanting a glide, but i never heard much about the 283s to take one over a 383. He told me it would really move the impala and thats a heavier car than mine. He also mentioned i can just throw a 327 crank in it and it could be really strong and still rev very high. Would it be worth it to go with this motor? can they really be built as strong as he says?
