Scoggins-Dickey offers the GM HT383 which makes 340 hp and 435 ft/lbs for $4478.80. I don't think you could find a more reliable stroker then one built by GM themselves.

Are these plug and play? Obviously I realize that components from my existing powerplant will have to be installed on the new transplant, but will everything from my engine bolt onto these, pullies, intake and throttlebody, ecu ok?
I emailed tuff dawg and they assured me that everything will work, just curious about the others. I'd also like to bring the price closer to 4K, that's with fluids and gaskets, everything, the Tuff Dawg is $3500 delivered with one year written warranty. Anybody ever heard of them, they're in Pheonix, Arizona.

What transmission do those vans come with?
GM suggests their usual 1/2 ton- 4L60E- isn't stout enough for their 383E stroker-I think they say it is OK up to 395lb or so???
Does than Savana have the heavier duty- 4L80E transmission?
