    Hey y’all, I’m looking for advice on my Nova build. I’ve got a built small block in my 74 Nova. Problem is, I’m 95% certain I’m not going to make enough vacuum to shift the TH400 transmission I’ve got in it. I have a FiTech EFI for air / fuel mixing.

    So I scored a freshly machined 350 block on craigslist, bored 0.060 over with a set of 060 pistons, rods and new bearings for next to nothing. My question is what parts would you recommend to build this out to a 383 stroker on a budget? Looking for recommendations on: Crankshaft, camshaft, heads

When i first start the car up and take it for a drive, my temp goes way up. 220, 230, even hit 240, then it will go right back down like the thermostat opened up and let it flow. it will do this 2 or 3 times...

    I am in the process of putting a crate 383 stroker in my 1969 nova. I am trying to find front marker bezels with "383" instead of my "350". I checked Classic Industries but they don't appear to carry a "383" bezel. Can anyone direct me to where I can find some? thanks for your help!

    I must start by saying I'm sorry if this doesn't make any sense. I don't really know what I am talking about when it comes to cars so I have been known to ask a stupid question from time to time. That being said, I am looking to strengthen the frame and my cousin suggested I get "sub frame...
