    I think the biggest advantage is the weight savings of the 383 over the 454

    Advantage of a 383 to a 350 is more torque...just the same 454 over a 396

    I would think a 383 would have about the same torque as a 396, but a big weight advantage.

    Now when you are talking stock 454, they came in many versions....from under 300hp to 450hp....They all have lots of torque

    Ok cool was kinda thinkin that might be the case but wasnt sure.I'm not really looking for tons of HP im looking at the more torque the better towing and a few HP's doesnt hurt either im not to concerned with fuel economy as i knew when i bought this truck that wasnt gonna be something i would get hehe it is gonna be a tow rig.

    Thanks for the reply's
