The block is the same size for all Small Block Chevys all the way up to 400. 383 strokers are a nice engine with much more torque than the 327 or 350

If you have time $ and patience, you could swap a LS1 in there. It would require more to swap than a '86 or older engine but gives you more power and mileage. Your car looks pretty stock, so you might want to keep the motor old school too.
