Sure you can hook it up. 383 and the 327 are the same externally. But why would you want to go from a 383 to a 327?backyard71nova said:what about a 327 with 373 gears, i found alot of these and am thinking aout trading in the 383 for a small journal 327.what about the 4 hole hook up in yhe side, what is it for, what does it do, can i hook it up in my car?
Agreed. I have a 388 and TH350/3.73's and its awful on the highway. Get passed left and right taching 3000+ RPM. IMO upwards of a 3.23 gear and you need some overdrive to make the car worth driving for more than a few miles at a time.xntrik said:I'd go for the OD as it makes a better overall street machine, since your effective rear gear will be about 2.60 in OD. You could even add more rear gear, 4.11 would get you about 2.88 in OD, see the possibilities?
Finding a buddy to check out the R4 and beefing it a little is a very good idea with a 383. Selling a 350 could help offset the expense.
