In no way is the battle of the 383 cubic inch engines that Engine Masters put together a fair fight, despite what Freiburger keeps claiming. Why? Simple: a small-block Chevy stroker is a rev-happy beast that makes power from the mid-range on, and the big-block Mopar motor was designed to move tons of land barge, so it has a torque wave that is enviable. So don’t look at this episode of Engine Masters as a comparison…that doesn’t work. Look at it as dyno porn, because let’s face facts: it’s winter, and now is project build time for a lot of us. Both engines are in the deep 400s on both horsepower and torque, and put into the right project car, will make for an entertaining driver that will leave tell-tale stripes around the county roads. That 383 would be perfect stuffed into a late 1980s Firebird, and as for that 383….well, Dulcich, let’s be honest: you know damn well where I’d shove that block. I’ve got a nice, seasoned 400ci block I could send your way…I’d even deliver it in person. Think about it, will you?
