Actually, if he is going to play with it a bit, rather than mess around, have the 350 block machined to except a 400 crank and build up a 383 Stroker. One seriously nice engine. We've built a couple up, and they run GREAT! One did blow, one we had put together for a local construction company. The workers were playing with it, (85' Chev with a 12' flatbed, dual rear wheels, detroit locker) and managed to scatter it with less than 2,000 miles on it. Should have heard my dad (their mechanic) "explain" breaking an engine in and "not drag racing a work truck!" to them! My cousin also ran a 383 when he was racing for while. Good engine. Takes the 350 and makes it better.
