A 283 bore is too small for the 2.02 valve from what I was told. But if the bore was notched then maybe. My guess is around 460-475 hp.

The 2.02 valve can hit the top of the bore on a 283 so if a notch is machined there then it could be ok.

nope total valve lift.....


2.02+1.60 = 3.62 add .050" space between the valve faces= 3.67...
283 bore= 3.875+.030=3.905/2=0.1175" clearance per side wall... High rpm valve deflection Wit a .750 lift... will clank...

Wow!! 460? That ambitious... We dont even know the CR. How do you see 460hp?? I was thinking closer to 375, maybe. But we will never know unless its put on the tug. But 460hp sounds a lil high. Even with race gas and a 11:1 CR I dont see above 400. Interesting. JR

I'm thinking that is a hole lot of head and intake for a 283 unless he plans to run it to 8K RPM.

If you get a pretty decent 1.25 hp per cube you are looking at 340-360 hp at 7000 rpm

The old 283 blocks are terrible .30 over is dangerous, they have terrible core shift and are 40+ years old the cylinder walls are very weak, the iron used was very pour quality, the best place for a 283 is under the hood of a 57 Chevy.......That wont be driven

My 406 is around 1.4 hp/CI on pump gas, he stated Domed Pistons so obviously it has high comp, solid roller, good heads, i see that motor over 8k RPM 283's like to rev. 283x 1.5 is close to 460. Thats just a guess. For a 283 on kill that is not too unreachable.
