I will suggest one thing, get a later model block that has a one pc rear main seal. the 383 stroker I just built for my truck has a 2 pc and it didnt seal right so i have to pull it back out and change rear main

you can convert any block to roller or use the retro hydro roller lifters.

the older blocks tend to have a little more meat in the main webbings
