Re: 383 Upgrade??
You didn't say if those numbers were at the wheels or at the crank. If at the wheels, those are not bad numbers. If at the crank, that's pretty pathetic for a 383.
If it's at the wheels, to get your power numbers at the motor do the math. I don't know what average drivetrain and accessory loss is but:
For 20% drivetrain loss, divide numbers by 0.8: 434hp, 519 tq
For 15% drivetrain loss, divide numbers by 0.85: 408hp, 488 tq
By the way, I'm going fuel injected and will be taking off a 670 Holley Street Avenger with less than a thousand miles on it pretty soon.
