It's a triple top sectret 383 stroker ..... nothing special really.. just a good reliable roller engine..375 hp .prob gained 65-70 hp with this verses my other small block which was very tired....

fax those drawings on down Fred we love to fab stuff...... funny how some people can just pick up a stinger and start welding....I am always amazed by her....
