Well........got the block back from the machine shop this weekend and have decided to go ahead and make the swap. Here is a breakdown on the new 283:
Flat tops (original with motor)
No bore Decked though
Holley 650 dbl
Mid 70's Performer intake
Heads are from a 80's 305 (52 cc) casting numbers end in 601 in case you know why I chose them.
Mild cam (204/214) (420/442)(1500 to 4500 rpm).
We figure somewhere in the neighborhood of 275 to 300 hp. Wish me luck. I did however decide to keep the 250 in case there is a demand later on for that "numbers matching" audience._________________

I will try to take a picture of the "Ugly Duckling" sometime this weekend. Thanks everyone for all your advice and help.

Yeah.....compression is going to be pretty high so I went with them. Only thing I'm worried about is the oil pan. Still have the original 67 pan. Hope it fits.
