Thanks I really appreciate the good info u gave me, that really help me. At least I kno now it is possible to get to 550hp with an HYD roller cam .... WOW !! They made 558 Horsepower @ 6300 – 510 ftlb @ 5000 i'm willing to put the detail work in my engine build to get in that range....

yeah that would be, but I already bought the 5.7 scat forged rods, but i might switch piston and go with the SRP there very good forged pistons 11:1:1 compression .... SRP part#271055 PROFESSIONAL FORGED FLAT TOP PISTONS..... They have very good ratings

For a good budget friendly piston look at Mahle or Probe.

I understand a solid roller cam will get me more hp and torque, But HYD Roller is that way i'm going. I alread paid for everything I can't really turn back now. Maybe I just need a bigger cam with good duration,What do u think??????
On those AFR heads its a good idea to check the chamber for CC volume as the last set was suppose to be 65 CC and when chacked they were 67.5 CC

On the OEM blocks its a good idea to sonic test for cylinder wall thickness.

Also why are the putting the caps on last as every thing measures of the main.

If your looking at 600 horse it would be a good idea to go to a splayed cap.

If your looking for good ring seal have it plate honed.

my87Z The cam, and compression are a little low to meet the hp goal you are shooting for. I run a 383 (.040" =385) with a solid roller cam with 255/261° at .050 and .600/.620" with 1.6 rockers, 11.2:1 compression with DART pro 1 215 heads with a fair amount of work done to them, single plane intake, I have both an 850 and a 750 (that's had a bunch of work done to it) double pumpers that i use on it. I had the motor dyno tested before i put it back into the car and i got just over 560hp. As AP mentioned I have the 6.0" rods.

with that cam and the current compression I would say you are in the 500hp range (which aint to shabby)

Now about the comments about the split duration/ dual pattern cams: many cams you see will have a dual pattern on them, this is largely due to heads with poorer flowing exhaust ports. The AFR heads you have do have good exhuast ports so a dual pattern cam is not really of any benefit. At the same time I dont think it's going to hurt anything either.

About what Vinnie is saying, there is never any true replacement for cubic inch displacement, but at the same time you have to be willing to spend the extra 2000-3000 on the parts. Really no 434's are build on OEM cast blocks, and rarely do you find in the DART SHP block, normally they are done on the more expensive aftermarket blocks like the LittleM which is going to run you around 2200.00 then another 200.00 to get it delivered to you. Most rotating assy for the 434 will cost a few hundred more than a 383 rotating assy of the same caliber.

I certainly can't knock Vinnie cause I have wanted to build a 421 SBC for a long time now but I have a hard time spending that much money for block.

SBC 383 stroker opinions & cam questions

Read this article. The guy built a 383 550 hp engine. Pay strict attention to all the little details that were involved. Notice the mighty Demon 750 carburetor!

Your opinion please if u can....

For my SBC 383 stroker, using afr 210 competition heads compression between 10:5:1 to 10:8:1. Will a Quick fuel 850 cfm Carburetor, 4-Barrel, Booster type>>>Annular Boosters, and the secondary is Mechanical be to much for the street even tho it might give me more HP& TQ. Would it be over kill for my STREET/STRIP engine build like poor throttle responce & not good gas mileage.

Not bad for being new!
Thanks I appreciate the info, and I using 5.7 rods scat I beam rods, but I have a question if i was to go with a bigger cam Lift & duration, Could I make more HP & TQ, I just wanted to do HYD Roller for my first engine build, and try to get close to 550hp or better....

For example>>>>>>

565/585 lift duration @.050 244/252

575/590 lift duration @.050 248/254

585/585 lift duration @.050 248/248

I am just respectfully asking for some input if you would? Thks Des



I'm new to this, I have been always into muscle car & performance engines. Im getting built a 383 Stroker going with TRW forged pistons .30 over, Forged Scat I Beam rods , 4130 Eagle Crank,World Products Motown Intake Manifolds Part#061040 rpm range 2500-7500 , Airflow Research (AFR) 1103 - AFR 210cc SBC Eliminator Competition Heads. I swapped the solid roller 710lift springs for the 650lift hyd roller springs cause of a hyd roller cam I want to go with...
[B]Compression between 10:5:1 to 10:8:1[/B

The HYD Roller cam I have with this set up now is a Lunati Voodoo cam.... How much Hp could I have with just keeping this cam
•Advertised Duration (Int/Exh): 282/290
•Duration @ .050 (Int/Exh): 231/239
•Gross Valve Lift (Int/Exh): .535/.550
RPM Range 2500-6500

vinniekq2 Lets do some math,first scroll up and look at my parts list.In your opinion are your parts the same as mine?
lets say my engine makes 1.5 hp per cube,I have 50 more cubes so 75 more horse power
and lets give my engine an extra 20 hp for using a solid roller.
you need to take away close to 100 hp from my engine to get what your engine will produce.

It was not me that said your split duration cam is a problem.
