Post 350 or 383 for street some strip

hello...

im torn between building a 383 stroker or a 355 for my 67 firebird. i have an unessembled 350 block over 30 with 5.7 rods, high domed pistons, dart pro 1 heads, 530 lift roller cam, edelbrock rpm air gap intake, holley 750 dbl pump, msd 6al, msd pro billet dist, electic water pump and fan.....so on

does anyone think its is worth the extra $$ to turn this into a 383 or will it already be to powerfull for the street

it`ll be plenty powerful for the street as a 355, but a 383 makes more torque. You won`t be happy on the street with high dome pistons, unless you intend on using race gas at 3.50 a gallon can get costly fast. I`d go with a 383, but unless you intend on running race gas, you`ll have to cut your compression down to 10:1 or it`ll detonate itself to death on pump gas. if you go with a 383, have it balanced. it won`t keep cool on the street either with a electric water pump. the pro 1 heads aren`t exactly street heads,with there big ports i`d say there for big displacement small blocks that can rev much higher than your combo will. before this will be a street engine, your gonna have to do some reconsidering.
