where did you come up with those numbers tsmith2? are they actual figures that you witnessed on a dyno? not a desktop dyno....i'm having a tough time swallowing those numbers in a street stock.....but anythings possible.

What he is saying is that 383's like that come pretty cheap for guys that finish on the lead lap in a modified.

If your going to run a mod, you will need at least a aluminum Rodeck block, Brodix headed, 434 CID roller with Kyptonite everything.

Maybe after Flatlander CLAIMS your 383 you'll be ready to move up to a bigger motor!

I'll put it this way, my buddy won a feature one nite with a stock crank/rod 327 with heavy TRW pistons and a solid cam and double hump heads. The motor only cost around $1500. the guy who got 2nd has unlimited money, runnin a hog ford motor and the track was tacky and was as fast as you could drive. Moral of the story, dont over motor a rookie driver especially if he doesnt know how to get the car hooked up and let alone know how to drive it!!!

he's the way i see it when it comes to hp if your car is hooked up and you get beat you need more if you can't get the car to hook up you need less. like flatlander said if you have alot you soon will have none in a mod

If your driver is sitting in a mod for the first time with THAT kind of power i'd really like to watch ,it should be entertainment for the first couple of laps till they got to scrape him off the wall.
Start small and work your way up till you find the right balance the opposite will just be frustratement and money .

I think with that motor you could run with the east coast big-block dirt mods.
