    The 383 is a good engine for cars with restricted cooling capacity,like F-body camaro's and vettes.You have a big truck with plenty of room for a big radiator,so just get a 400-it will have more power and be easier to get parts for.As long as good headgaskets are used and the steam holes are all there and clear-the 400 is a good engine,my original had 178K on it,no problems,it stil ran good,but we rebuilt it and put a cam in it,and wow,it ran like a big block.It pulled hard to 4800,and had power right from idle.
