    Hey guys, whats the best place to buy a 383/Th400/205 setup? Prefferably new. Summit looks good for the engine but what about the tranny and xcase? Thanks!

    Build your 383, check the wrecking yards, or the for sale forum on here for the rest.

    There is a HUGE amount of information on Chevy 383's out there. Search this sight, check out Chevy Hi Performance, Powerhouse, your local machine shop.............

    Check OffroadDesign or Advance Adapters for the t-case.

    In that case, check out American Speed, in Moline IL, they are right up the hill from me. They could make a 383 for him that would definately put a grin on his face....

    Would it be worth having it built there then shipped than building it in AZ ? Do they have a website? Thanks /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    www.amerspeed.com They are good, and deal in mail order too.

    I'm sure there are places in AZ too. Just compare, base price, shipping etc.... I'm just glad they are close by.

    What about Arizona Speed and Marine. Theyre engines have been in several magazines with good words about them.

    Make damn sure you go to a reputable place. I found a shop around here that seemed good, but the engine (383) put a rod through the oil pan on the interstate. /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif
