you want in street reliable form. The simplicity of a low cr 383 SBC for that or even and very basic 427 BBC w flat top pistons (low cr) offsets that cost. and the package all fits under the Camino hood.
It is not space challenged.
It must run on premium unleaded. Kicking up the boost and power is a option using high octane gas for a track day is a consideration but if you want 600hp real power on the street it has to perform on pump premium.
Forget 87 octane gas. With a 6 speed manual trans you do not need to rev the piss out of it
so a hyd roller will get it done. But a solid STREET roller (moderate duration and lift and spring pressure really gets it done)
Again if you want a 600hp N/A motor build a 496 +cid with a 427-454 block
Do not bother with a 427cid based N/A build for a real deal street 600hp. That is a race engine.
You need to look at the usability of that 383. You already own it.
What is it?
Lingenfelter ran one straight out of the crate with 2 1/4" X 4" headers and an 850. It made 489 HP @ 6K and 481 tq. @ 4K
