Re: Need help with 383 Stroker
What JasonSnider said! Find somebody in your area that has a successful race car, and see if he will teach you what you need to know. It is far better to learn to do something yourself, than to have to depend on someone else. The most important thing in life is learning how to spot BS people. Most who read your post understand that the "12 hour guys" are BS people. Go to some races and talk to some people that run well. Ask if you can help them wrench in return for learning. Don't expect something for nothing. This has worked for me.
Going from a 4 speed to a trans/brake cost me about $2200. That was for xmission,convertor, shifter, cooler, changing exhaust crossover, different crossmember, deeper trans pan, better drive shaft, a lot fluid. Still don't have a blanket, but will be getting one soon. I'm saying this just so you know what you can get into with a 'simple' transmission swap. (And the convertor should have a snout for a 400 crank.)
