I have been working on a 1930 Model A coupe for about 4 years and I thought it would be fun to have a hot engine again. I had one about 30 years ago and It had 550 hp. and was a thrill to drive, it would not idle below 1400 rpm. and took lots of gas and had to be tuned up a lot. I thought the new 383 stroker engines with hydraulic roller cams would eliminate the need for constant tuning, and running 1 carb instead of 2 would make it more user friendly also. So I got a 383 and put it in my model A along with a 700r4, now I have driven it a little and I realize that I am 30 years older and my tastes have changed. I now am interested in cruising and not so much the performance. So my question to all of you is, what should I do? I figure I have 3 choices; No.1 De tune this 383 stroker with a stock numbers roller cam and possibly drop the compression from 10.1 to 1 down to 9 to 1. although the pistons are just a maybe. No.2 take out this engine and freshen up a 1970 Chevy 350 that I have sitting in my shop and try to sell the 383 stroker. No.3 Buy a GM goodwrench 350 and drop it in and try to sell the 383 stroker. I believe it would be hard to sell the 383 without losing most of my investment in it or I would do that. Even though it has only about a hundred miles on it I'm afraid I can not sell it for much, so what do you guys think I should do?
