      That's a deal for a really nice engine. That baby will make a 4000lb B-Body scoot.

        Hi, looks great, KB pistons..what P#are the pistons? The original post says KB flat tops but they don't look like flat tops, maybe flats with valve notches. Curious to the P# used.

        KB162 and 2.00" on the headers. The pistons are flat top, and yes they have pockets for the valves.

        Someone needs this 383. I'm willing to sell this at or below cost to free up space and capital. Go ahead make me an offer and get a super great deal.

        It's not just the parts in the engine Mike (though they are well thought out too) it's the way you put it together that makes it even better. 436 HP/460TQ, come on, this 383 should come with a whiplash insurance policy.

        Just curious how did the FBO outperform the MSD 7? Better down low, or throughout the curve? By how much?

        It was better start to finish. It made about 7tq more down low and 5-6hp on the top.

        Nice build Mike. It just proves you don't need a 440 or a stoker kit to have a good street engine that will cruise down the road without hassle and will set you back in the seat when you want some fun.
