Sure it will make tons of torque but this will be a pretty much drag only car and a lot of torque really wont be neccesary. HPs what I need.
Don't need any torque? Not if you have a mile run at the starting line. You can buy retro roller lifters and associated parts, you're on a budget, nothing's cheap, especially in a motor that will be thrashed on the strip, but budget motors are certaintly possible. Going 383 doesn't fit in the same sentence with budget. Don't under estimate the Votrec heads, but keep everything compatible, tell us what your budget is and what your setup will be.
