Customer q:

I currently have a 260 4.3L engine and am looking to purchase a crate motor. Originally, I wanted to keep it an Olds and get a 350 Rocket, but I realize that may be difficult to get the 400 HP. I am thinking that I might like to get a 383 Stroker instead. I want to be able to drive the vehicle occasionally without having to stop for gas ever 100 miles. I do not need it set up for racing, but would like to have some power when I hit the accelerator. I'm looking for some guidance on this.  Will this fit under a stock hood of a 1979 Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme and will this be an easy bolt on for the AC unit as well?
