Hellow Monte,your going to have a bad to the bone monte carlo when you get her going, they are cool looking cars getting to be populer with the performance crowd!!! Say, the 383 produces more tourqe than a 350 anyways,and just does not need to be reved as much. The cam you have is agood choice, the extrem energy 268 has more lift and duration than High energy cams. Yours is about .477/.480, .227/.230 at .050 lift. RPM manifold matches that exactley. I think the 750 vac. carb is a great choice! Remember your 383 is 30ci. bigger than the 350's. also your rear gears and the 700/R4 steeper gears,the 2500 stall converter will help with any tourqe missing down low. 1 5/8' headers help down low, 1 3/4' up a little more, same with exaust stay at 21/2'diameter.I was wondering though, if the heads might be a little small, bigger valves maybe.Just my thougts and 2cents also! Your going to tear em up when your done!!!RSSSCHEVY2
