Increased torque from 383

Hello all,

I have discussed this question with another forum member already, but I thought that I would put it out there for others to comment on.

I am anticipating putting a 430 HP/400+ torque sbc 383 stroker into a basic, unmodified 1969 coupe.

The question is-what material should the motor mount be (rubber, poly, delrin) to correctly handle the torque of the new engine?

Are there any other rubber parts that should be upgraded to a harder material to go along with the new engine's torque? My brakes and wheels are already upgraded or are about to be.

Thanks for your help.

John T.

Re: Increased torque from 383

you can buy solid engine mounts
my engine produces 511 feet of torque. I use a turn buckle from the head to the frame. it is adjusted snug but still lets the engine have some freedom of movement

Re: Increased torque from 383

It's your choice... I have a 400ish HP/TQ 383 with stock mounts and no problems in the 10ish years it's been under the hood... Make sure you have good U joints and a decent trans mount and unless you are a track rat racking the miles 1320 feet at a time you'll be fine!
