383 Build Questions

I know i'm asking a 100 questions, but i need to pick some minds that know, your help is appreciated ! ok so far i've ask about a 350 build , and a 377 build, but now wondering about a 383 build.

info on P/U it's going in

not a daily driver or hwy cruiser, 71 Chevy P/U 350 turbo tranny with stall converter & 373s rears

when building a 383 theres some block work that needs to be ground away or clearanced for the rotating assembly correct ? just have that done when block is machined / bored ? they should know where & how much ? i plan on reconditioning my 350 rods, then take the new crank in the northern auto parts kit, with flexplate and my ballancer down to machine shop and have it ballanced ?

this will have prob a roller rockers & an Edelbrock RPM Performer intake and 76cc cast iron heads, headers

ok questions

1. should i run a new harmonic balancer ? this place rebuilds used ones

2. what CR should i run ?

3. should i run a HV Oil Pump ?

4. below is whats in the kit, what cam would you run for this build (cams for this kit are listed below)
