that's the 1970 Plymouth b-body "spec's" page not to be confused with anything ELSE

marketing VS. advertising VS. reality = everything is not the same - ASK detailed specific questions & you stand a chance at getting a proper correct answer

1970 383 'cuda 4-speed engine IS the same as 1970 383 Road Runner 4-speed engine

Maybe the model AVS Carb was different as 2 models are listed for each Stick and Auto


A body 383's had dual point distributors, RR/SB engines did not, but they did use the same carb as the RR/SB.

Not true. My 69 383 Dart GTS with 330hp had the windage tray in the oil pan from day one. And I'm the original owner.



The A Body pan had a baffle not a windage tray.


FYI. Vans Auto is offfering the original 893 A body big block oil pan as well as the correct pickup.

My '68 Superbee still has its "born with" 330 horse motor. Many '68 bees were actually 330 horse, by '69 the 335 was standard. This is verified on the trim tag as an engine code of 62 (330 HP) vice 63 (335HP).

My 330 horse has exact same 906 heads, exact same HP exhaust manifolds, and exact same unsilenced air-cleaner as 383 HP and 440 HP motors. It did not come with windage tray but did come with a 402 pan. Parts book says cam is 2531190 for 330 horse, 2843564 (440 HP) for 335 horse. Carbs are the same by application between the two 383 motors, distributors are different part numbers, likely different advance curves.

Bottom line, more cam, recurved distribuor, and windage tray were the only difference.

WRONG! '68-'70 both 330hp & 335hp received the dual exhaust manifolds which are commonly & incorrectly referred to as HP manifolds
383 2bbl engines received the "log" single exhaust manifolds (only on RH for '70)

WRONG! there is NO "63" used in 1968 335hp was STANDARD on '68 & '69 Super Bee
& the only '68 Super Bees with the 330hp engine are also equipped with A/C

Sounds like you got lucky and the wrong engine was installed, unless the 4speed cars got the 335HP engine ??

The RR engine had the 440 magnum cam, the 330HP engine which your non roadrunner should have had used the same cam as the 350hp 440 and the 2bbl 383 engine, that is where the 5hp is.

Well just for the hell of it when I had the car I checked the numbers and I got the E383 engine Car ran real well but I doubt if it was better then a 15.0 car but it was a convertable special ordered by the original owner with console 4spd
