It will run a bit faster on 110+ octane race gas and 10-11psi boost.
It is really hard to beat supercharged power on the street.
strip only, use this Drag slick with the 4.56's 11.50 ET's
M/T #3055W 28.0/10.5-15W 11"'s of sticky rubber 10" wide rim with correct offset.
And then the little voice in my head hears all of this and starts talking back lol...I'm looking at 1200 for heads, 200 for an intake, 300 for solid cam and lifters....750 for 383 rotating assembly, 700 in machining and assembly.....so....what we have here is app3200$.....or........450 for summit rebuild kit with forged slugs, the same 700 machine and assembly, keep my 906 heads and port them, use the thmper cam I already own, use the springs, guide plates and screw in studs I already own, use my 750dp I already own....and add 2300 for the weiand supercharger.......so....3400$ and I'm blown....likely more reliable then a high strung high compr 383.....and can likely make more power on any given day.....
