You will need a small base circle with the standard cam location. It will be no additional charge. How does this cam sound?
from Ryan Heart?
I think this cam is a little small to make big power though on a 383 it should rev 6800.
I would use AFR 210s or bigger to make 550 HP.The SCR will need to be tailored to fit the heads when you decide,probably 10.5 ish:1,depending on cam chosen.
the cam you mentioned has an ICL of 106.
you will need roller rockers with girdle or better. decent headers/manifold and fuel management system
Thanks for the info...but why do I need the cam in a small base circle? And I think I'm going to get a set of AFR 210 Eliminators and the AFR girdles.
