I am definently planning on putting a blown tpi 383 stroker inplace of my 305 tpi and will spare no expense but i am on a limited budget. So what I want to know is if I could get a list of mods I could do to my car now that will work for my 383 when I put that in Ex.(Larger exhaust, new aluminum radiator, stronger drive train...)

I hope to have that engine(the 383) putting out 600-750+ hp.

Thank you for any opinions and parts,

What I mean about a limited budget is I do not have enough money to do everything at once, but i do want the best parts out there.

"spare no expense but i am on a limited budget" ...so which is it?

I definantly wouldn't plan on building a 750+ hp small block on a limited budget. Plan on buying a new transmission and rearend also.

600-750hp is a lot...why do you want so much? Is this a street car?

I agree. Is it limited budget or full meal deal?

And I don't think you'll need 750hp on a street car, if so, you won't even be near hooking up.
I have a carbed 430ish HP 383 and I still have problems, and spent close to $4000 or so on mine, and still spending.
I think you need to determine a few things like cash willing to part with,plans for the car,driving habits,etc,etc.

But for a start...a good aluminum radiator from Be Cool or Griffen will be a start, and a 2.5" dual or 3" single exhaust with a good free flowing muffler is a good place to start.

Good luck!
