probably cheaper to convert your current engine to EFI. You'll get the same power from a hot LS as your current BBC.

you'll have to upgrade the fuel system either way.

LS engine you'll need different engine mounts and new exhaust, which will add to the cost.

above all else ... real men drive big blocks

Laptop tuned through the Holley ECU. Fitech looks interesting but I'll probably go the Holley Sniper package on the Roadrunners 383.
Hey Booah, I'm in Perth as well and I'm running a Sniper unit on a 383 in a 69' Cuda vert. Let me know if you decide to jump on it and I'll give you a hand with the settings. I'm still going with the fine tuning but it's mostly there, just a few small issues to sort out. The Holley forum has been helpful too. Let us know how you go.

Thanks Phil, I'll keep that in mind when I head down that route.
