Post TPI on a mild 383???

haven't decided on heads yet (still really up in the air what I will do). however, I will run a 383 with crower cam # 00240. this engine will be built for torque, and not HP.

* Advertised duration: 267 intake/272 exhaust
* Duration at .050 in. cam lift: 210 intake/216 exhaust
* Gross valve lift: .445 in. intake/.445 in. exhaust
* Lobe separation: 112 degrees

Hot Rod Magazine did a build up like this many years ago. I remember they added Nitrous to it and other goodies. they were not impressed with it, but I think this was in the days before better chips and other mods for the TPI. in means of airflow, a TPI is equal to a 2 barrell carb. but if blow the rear tires off killer torque is what your after, and it looks to be, it`ll give you that like no carb ever will.

I have heard that more much more than a bone stock application the tpi's are not worth messing with. For the cost of the upgrades, you can buy a Holley or something similiar that is ready to go.

I'd heard they would handle up to 300 HP, but wasn't sure how this would handle the extra torque.
