Hey all. I'm about to have my '88 350 on a stand in my garage, and I was thinking I might want to convert to 383 if the block machining is minimal. I've been seeing a lot of 383 assembly's on ebay, and was wondering what everyone's thoughts on them are. A new 383 is $3000, while a rotating assembly for my 350 can be acquired for under $1000 (already more than I can spend..). Is it worth it? Should I just do a stock rebuild with whatever overbore may be needed, if my stuff is in good condition? Or, if 383 conversion is too much $$ and work, what should I consider to get some more torque from my 350? I don't think it's that tired, I'm swapping and rebuilding because it's developed a noisy lifter/valve/bearing, but I want more power out of it when it goes back in. Cam? I want a smooth idle, but power in the pedal. I'm kinda stuck with the stock heads, I think. Give me your thoughts, I'm starting this week I think! thanks! Ratch CK5 album Your ad here.
