Well as i pulled apart the 383 today i found the culprit of the low oil pressure, a spun main bearing. So ive been doing some thinking and seem to like the idea of either a 427 or 434 stroker. I have canfield 220cc heads that have been ported that i think would go real nice with either a 434 or 427. I found this short block and was wondering what everyone thought. link

looks good but ive heard those shp blocks arent very good for all out drag racing i would upgrade to the dart lil m block i dont know the difference between the sportsman block and competition block except the price you may want to call them about that though cause i may be wrong about all of it let me know the results what they say

yea they do have the sportman M blocks but its like another thousand. The car is mostly gonna be street driven but i will definitely take it to the track a few times. Im looking to build a nasty pump gas small block. so ill get a custom ground cam that will create some wild torque numbers.

The stock block I'm running came out of a car running an 8-71 blower with 20 psi of boost---I wouldn't worry about the SHP block.
