for me if i were to drive it on the street more than on the track id stick with the 5.7 rods that you have listed but it will perform great at the track aswell just with the 6" rod puts the pin up in the rings, it is very easy to make power and tq with a 383 and id deff use a better carb to feed the need, pn#4779 750cfm holley will put it out, but it you can aford a few extra bucks the holley street hp 750 is a nice peace, with the cr being around 9.7 will make it good on 93 octane, you can get easy 600hp out of a 383 on pump gas with the right goods with your combo with a holley prb around 420-450hp my guess, my wife's cuzin has a 98' s10 with a 383 in it 4:10 gears and a tci th350 just let me tell ya the 29/12.5/15 mickey sportsmans dont stand a chance, he drives it around town all the time, even when it uses 114 race fuel!
