Thank goodness for these posts. I searched "SBC Thumper Cam" and read all the responses in those posts. There was a lot of good info there. I too am considering a 383 in a one-piece rear seal block. I was going to use flat top hypereutectic pistons with the coated skirt and stock rods in a daily driven pick-up (in my project journal). I was looking into a set of heads with 180cc intake runners and 2.02/1.60 valves with 64cc chambers. This block is set up for a roller cam (bosses for the spider in the valley, cam retainer drilled and tapped) so I was looking at the Extreme Energy hydraulic roller that specs: 270/276 .495/.502 with the powerband being 1600-5400 rpm. I plan roller rockers, RPM Air-Gap intake and the carb is undetermined. A 2000 lock-up convertor in a 700R4 and 3.42 or 3.73 rear gears. Any suggestions?
