I aquired a 383 blueprinted motor today from a friend for $1oo bucks!! what a deal. he parted out his truck and I was the lucky one.. Supposedly the motor has 40,000 on it and the heads were redone 1,000 miles ago due to a blown head gasket. I just have a few questions...What about the bottom end???should I replace bearings,pistons,rings,cam etc???what kind of Horespower and torque should I expect from this??? I would like to spend only enough to make it FRESH so I don't have to mess with for a long time.. Also any good machinists that can be trusted in COLORADO to do necessary work to motor??? Problem#2 10 Bolts will they be destroyed from excessive power?? I have blown them both once and spent lots of cash to have them done stronger but probably not strong enough for what they are about to experience.. I 4 wheel it very hard and havent had any problemms with them for over 2 years now. HELP PLEASE!!! Thanx Guys!!!
