Project Chevelle Episode 8: 383 Engine, Part 1

9/5/2018

Through all of our suspension and braking upgrades, the original 307 in Project Chevelle has been fighting bravely to keep up. Well, the day has finally come to pull it and start getting its replacement ready to do battle. Watch as we dress up a BluePrint Engines 383 and run it on the dyno in preparation for its turn in the Chevelle's engine bay.

Stick around, this is where it gets fun!

For more on the engine swap, check out the 383 Tech Article on the Toolbox.
