If I was building a 420 horse power 283,I would use heads that flow 240 cfm and still use an intake center line at 102-105.If I use a carb bigger than a 4777 ( 650 double pumper)I would use a 4777 with a base plate off a 4781 (850 double pumper base plate) If you look at my ideas you will see that I mostly recommend items that are high velocity (moderate/small ports,carb with small venturi,moderate lift cam, 2.02 valve with small ports and lower lift) the flow numbers are plenty to support 300 HP. If you have a 283 engine that make 250 plus horse power at 6500 rpm,you also get extremely responsive throttle and the lower ICL makes for the punchie power band that makes a small engine fun to drive. The idle would be a little lumpy but not obnoxious like some of the silly 300 duration hydraulic flat tappet cams.
I admit that no engine combo is perfect,but if I can borrow from the master,Mr Tech,combination combination
I can't really make much sense of all of that, I'm guessing other people can't either.
