383 sbc questions

Ok guys, I ended up selling a few things, so plans have changed again for for my T-bird drag car. I'm now planning a 383 sbc. It's not going to be extremely wild, as I'm still learning the ropes with the driving part. My plans are, an eagle cast steel crank, eagle SIR rods, and speed pro h635cp30 pistons for the short block. I know a roller cam would probably be better, but I've got a Comp 306s solid lift cam, and a 58 cc chamber set of Procomp heads with 210cc intakes, and either a Team G or a Bowtie single plane intake. This'll be ran on e85. Sorry I keep changing directions on this thing, but that's what happens around here.

My questions are though, will this motor be anywhere in the neighborhood of 500 hp? What kind of torque would I be seeing, and will either of the intakes I have work well on it?

Thanks guys

Depending on how far in the hole the pistons are, you're static c.r. will be around 13.67:1.

CompCams makes over 38 cams in the 306s line, what do you have for specs or p/n?
