Yes. Either you have an automatic 4L60E or a manual NV3500. Both can withstand the full range of what's available in a GM small block... in naturally aspirated form. If you get to adding a turbo, then you'd want to upgrade to a 4L80E or NV4500.

get it tuned!
The 1978 El Camino was NEVER available with anything larger than a 350 CID motor from the factory. The horsepower ratings for these motors ranged from about 160 to 180 depending on the model. The "383 stroker" is a non-factory motor that is usually based on a 350 block that has been overbored and then equipped with a crankshaft with a longer stroke. Horsepower ratings for such a motor can range from 250 to over 500 depending on other engine modifications (camshaft, cylinder heads, intake manifolds, injection or carburetion, etc).
If I remember this correctly its stock 350 4 inch fitted with the 400 crank and rods.
NO, the 383 is called a stroker engine. It is a 350 with a 400 crankshaft that is machined, to make it work in a 350 block. There are other factors and modifications to be made when building a stroker. The only 383 that came from the factory is in Chrysler vehicles.
watch the rpms when you break stand the car
From the factory,...None. Dodge never built a "stroker" motor as we call it today. As you probably know you can build a stroker by installing a 440 crank assembly into a 383 block to end up with a 426 wedge or a 440 crank into a 400 block to end up with a 444, both assuming stock bore. Bored out you will naturally get a little more. Dodge Chargers from 1966 to the end of the original Charger had motors from 225 ci to 440 ci. All were factory stock, with factory parts, designed and built by Dodge. Also the elephant engine, the 426 hemi was available every year in the charger beginning in 1966 up through 1972.
The 97 Honda Prelude motor (h22a) will fit into a 2000 civic with custom mounts (available to purchase online), however you will need the h22a transmission, shift-linkage, axles, and ecu (full swap). The h22a motor will not work with the stock d-series transmission.
No. the combination of larger displacement and an extra hundred HP will cause it to be too lean, a stock tpi will not do 400 hp. there are plenty of mods you can do to get it to work, check this FAQ, http://www.customefis.com/faqsite.html
Simply stated the difference is that a Stroker engine has greater than stock displacement due to an increase in the factory crank throw. An increase in crank throw increases stroke (the difference between the piston's top dead center and bottom dead center position).
700r4 is the stock transmission for all third gen camaros. the 700r4 is also known as the 4L60E
