    A 383 is a SBC 400 crank in a 350 block, that would be a step backwards compared to the LS you have now.. pick up a Hot Rod magazine at your local news stand there are some great article on the LS lately.

    Pick some very specific goals for you car. Like DD, weekend warrior, Racecar?
    Drag race, autocross, circle track, drifting?
    Do you have a horsepower or 1/4 mile time you're aiming for?

    308 stock? Strong ls1 in that one. Good h/c/i on a Scoggin Dickey 413 shortblock would make very good hp.
