383 build

hello,
so im back to the drawing board. i got the 350 block back from the machine shop so the only thing left is to hone it for the pistons. my goal is to hit the 500 hp mark.

this is what im thinking

http://www.summitracing.com/parts/SCA-1-90305BE

http://www.summitracing.com/parts/AFR-1036

http://www.summitracing.com/parts/CCA-54-424-11


im not sure of what a good compression ratio for street use is but id like it to be somewhere close to it. also we only have 91 octane in the area.


does anyone have any input or suggestions?

somme 215 trickflow heads, a XR292 compcam, supervictor with a 750 holley street hp, .150 thousands dome top pistons, running 11.1-11.5CR, you could lower the CR to 10.1-10.5 to be able to run high test pump gas 91-93 octane, run around 36 dgrees total timing, that camshaft mite be alittle bigg, ill look in to a smaller cam 4 you, the 292 will get you to the 600hp range, so mayb the xr280, ill get back to you on that....

Sounds like a good street package to me. Cam you linked is for the newer LS1/LS6 engines however, won't fit your block. The actual cam grind is just fine but you could go a little bigger if you want a hot rod engine rather than a plain daily driver.

That one is pretty stout, it will need 3200 rpm or more stall and at least 3.73 rear gears, 4.11 would be better. Definately not a daily driver cam, this would be a weekend toy or street/strip cam.
