The difference might be more dependant on the car it's in than anything else. In a 57 chevy the 283 would be the corect stock motor where as in a 68 camaro it would not. Both can produce plenty of neck snapping horse power, but now days you would lean towards a 350 or 383 unless you are restoring a car and want the correct c.i. motor.
