383 Build ideas?

-Need ideas!-

I’ve been on this website multiple times to read multiple posts on different types of arguments and ideas for engine builds.(this one is the best around) However this is my first post. I guess you can call this my first engine build by myself but I have participated in others. i am building a chevy 383 street/strip motor.

This is what I have already: Two Bolt main with 200,000 PSI ARP Studs. Scat Forged crank. Scat Forged pro comp rods 5.7” with ARP Bolts. KB +5cc Forged pistons

My first question would be how many RPMs I can safely run with this bottom end? (Wish I had a four bolt mains but the block was free)

I’m looking for some good quality ideas for top end applications for my 383. Looking for close to 500hp and compression of around 10.5. (Needs to be able to drive on street. Not going on road trips will be 50/50 street strip). Not a huge budget build I do have money to spend on this motor but keep in mind I have other bills to pay. This will be naturally aspirated no blowers or turbo. Real Hp.

ALL IDEAS WELCOME!
