Unless someone did something different? And it was a Q-jet, I was going to dump it for a Holley 650 but the tranny started to slip so I sold it for the Bonnie. I paid 1800 originally and I sold it for 2800
You're right, I got overly excited, no the block won't have enough meat in it to go 4.030 you need to start with a 350 or a large journal 327 block to build a 383.
used to be you had to use a 400 crank and grind the journals down to 350 size but now a days they are casting and forging 383 cranks from the manufacturer. You could have always gone to a 350 and still gotten the same amount of hp. I love chevy'*. That car would be worth something not if you kept it in good shape.
You guys need to stop... You are making me drool...

we took a Chevy 400 4 Bolt, Installed Flat top pistons, Ported heads with oversized valves, a .500 solid lift cam... 600 CFM Edlebrock I believe it was( Later replaced with a Holley ) Attached at Turbo 400 Trans to it, and an LSD rear end... OMG That car was Baddddd

I used to have a chevy chevette bored over to a 4.30 350 cranker yanked with push rod piston series even flow oil journals and piston cam with 475 over bearing crank sprockets that put out about 700 horse to the front wheels. Man that car was fast.

I Traded it for a matchbox limited edition diecast.

Frank, I'm with you. While my wife and I were raising two kids on a veeeeerrry small salary, we went for 10 years with a Datsun 2-door 210. It was a PITA to cram things and two car seats in that thing. Plus it had like a .9 liter 4-cyl engine and eventually the body rusted just about off, lol.

But it was easy to work on, never required any major repairs, and gave me a good 160,000+ miles (odometer died for 1.5 years before I replaced it). Got us through the lean years.

I sold a '69 Camaro (my always favorite old car) to buy it. The Camaro had been so much fun that it cost me my license for 6 months.... Now maybe you understand...

Bill, I have to tell you that the 90 SSE is the slowest car in this family.

Stock the 90 SSE came with about 175 hp Automatic.
Cathy'* Vigor is only 5 cyl. but has more horsepower than the Bonne, is lighter and is a 5 spd. It beats the 90 SSE. As for the 95 SSEi, as it stands now, it'* not all that quicker than Cathy’* Vigor. I maybe safe to say that her car may even beat the 95 SSEi. And I don't even consider her car to be fast......Now I definitely wouldn't say that'* "Bad", I'd say that'* SAD!
