Post small base circle cam

I'm building a 383 stroker. The block is a 1996 4 bolt 5.7 vortec truck engine.I haven't bought a cam yet.My question is will I have to have a small base circle cam? I'm using the stock 5.7 PM rods with a scat 3.75 crank. The hydraulic roller cam I am considering has .510 intake and .520 exhaust lift. Anyone used the PM rods in a 383 stroker? Your input will be greatly appreciated.

You should not have any problems. I just finished my 400 with .510 lift cam. I am running aftermarket rods, and they needed a little grinding for cam clearance, but stockers usually dont require any. I would check it when you assemble it however.
