383 parts

Hey guys,
I think I have scored on a deal. Well, I hope so, because Ive already bought them.
I am looking put together a 383 stroker motor to put into my 72 Chevelle.
So I was looking on craigslist for various parts for the motor.
And I found a aftermarket 383 crankshaft, a brand new balanced flywheel, brand new externally balanced harmonic balancer, procomp motorsports 6" connecting rods, Keith Black Claimer flat top pistons. All for 400 bucks.
When I met the guy, he defiantly knew what he was talking about. And I told him what I was planning on doing.

I have the 350 block already. So Im taking all the parts to the machine shop on Sunday to have the block work done, and also have them put the internals together because Im not too comfortable doing myself.

So what does everyone think?

I was also looking for suggestions on a cam. To be perfectly honest, Im looking for a bad *** street stroker motor. I think Im off to a good start.
After the machine work, all ill need is a set of AFR heads and Ill be set.

What are you guys thoughts? good or bad, do tell.

Thanks!
Mike
