: 383 Kit
Jul 17th, 00, 10:47 AM
Can anyone tell me who has a good quality balanced 383 kit available? Price is definately a concern, but I want as much quality as I can get for a reasonable price.
I will need Crank, Rods, and Pistons.
Thanks for the help.

I just installed my 383...about 200 miles so far. I used Powerhouse. They were fantastic!They were extremely helpful and made sure my combination was going to do what I wanted (600 hp with Nitrous). They also have a lot of other parts extremely cheap, roller rockers, timing sets, etc.
They are in almost every car magazine you pick up.
Let me know if you need more info.

You might also look at SpeedOMotive also. Their kit is great quality and the price is resonable. They have a website it is www.speedomotive.com (http://www.speedomotive.com) hope this helps.
