    Well if your looking for low end torque(1K-3K), I don't think the edelbrock, is what your looking for.
    If you current set up is not putting out 260 lbs./ft. then maybe a new motor is inorder.
    Good luck

    "Worth the money" means many things to many people. It all depends on what you're looking to get out of your engine. I had all the power I needed out of my stock engine with an Edelbrock 600 on it. I'm going to TBI right now for the added reliability / driveability. A crate motor would probably be a better use of your money if you've got a marginal engine already. Then you could always go for EFI at a later date. In the end, it all boils down to what your preference is.

    well if i go with the crate engine then i have to get the wiring of all the computer equipment for the throttle body but if i go with the edlebrock set up is all bolt on, when i say worth the money i am not talking about the price am i going to see good results

    I though that GM made create motors that included all of the EFI stuff. Was I dreaming?

    I like my Edelbrock MPFI on my 468. EASY to tune in, controls spark and fuel, uses common sensors, bolts on easy, etc. I like that there is no laptop involved.
    Bang for the buck? get a little more displacement and a fresh motor with the $2200 and put your factory system on it with a larger throttlebody and a new chip. This should make a 383 pretty happy.
    If you're looking for something that you can tune to the hilt, and adapt to different motors and different parts in a motor, I think the Edlebrock MPFI is the way.
