    not too shabby (451)..is it a street Engine ?..i have a 406ci that only made 460hp..but its only 10:1 compression iron heads (iron eagle) just a little bowl blend, flat tappet 520 lift cam...off the shelf 750 carb ( with horn)

    tell us a little more about that 383ci you have...sounds like a good piece !

    motor

    Its a 4bolt main block 10.5 to 1 cr with alum heads,2.02 int.valves,comp cam with 526 lift.It has a eagle crank ,alum intake with a 750dp holly.I think for the money,4k,I thought it is a good deal.I heard good things about NYES on the forum and looked into them.FISHMANJOE

    I agree you done very well for 4k and yes Nyes is well known for great Service..I walked thru their shop about 4 years ago.

    My engine guy said my 406ci could reach the 600hp mark with a Bigger camshaft and bumping up the compression to From 10:1 to 12:1.

    Looks like your 383 has the same potential with little changes...thats a great thing.

    have fun !

    slap it on another dyno it'd be closer to 500 thats another perk of Nyes shop
