SBC 383 stroker opinions & cam Questions???

Sounds like a good performance motor. Are you using 5.7" or 6" rods? You probably were on the right track to make 550 hp with the mechanical roller. Now with the hyd. roller you chose I would say it might make 500-530 hp with a 850 hp carburetor. You could do some mild porting to your heads and intake, that might help you to get the 550 hp. Not bad for being new!
