“Thank You for suppling me with the 383 Stroker stage 3 engine for my 1968 Chevy Camaro Z/28. This unit was installed and detailed to finish out the classic look & style of this era but with modern day power ! This car is articled in the July 2012 issue of Chevy High Performance Magazine, “In from the Cold” pages 52 – 56. I hope to use your engines in my future projects.
