Pantera 1970's 24SE needs new engine. What ?

Hi, new to the forum so no flaming just yet please.
have bought an old Pantera with a Volvo 280 leg and housing on it that i want to retain that was married up to a 350 5.7 chevy now totally defunct.
i have some of the bits for it like manifolds/headers/carbs but not in ggreat condition.

i want to replace the engine with something with more power but conflicting advice as regards what to and what would fit with the same leg and mounts.
the two main seem to be
1. stay 350 but newer one with more power than the old
1. stay short block and go 388 stroker
2. go big block 454

anyone got any experience of this and can help me decide what and where from as the other pantera site i go to is in the states and of course everything a whole lot easier and cheaper out there. i wont be racing it but want it to be as reasonably quick to suit the style of boat.

Hi, I have known that boat from new and drove it back then. I have some very firm views on the amount of power and weight you should give consideration to for that setup, but how much are you willing to spend ?
A single 383 stroker build by the right engine builder would be more than enough,
Please PM me for further details. I may have some of the parts you may need.

Hi Russell, yes I received your PM and I have tried to send you a response to it, but there is some sort of problem.

So if you would like to call me on 07836 763443 I will tell you what I know about the boat and its history.

Regards
