what do you guys think of this combination. one of my buddies at work has this zz383 short block.

he wants to mimic this heads & cam combination.

AFR 195 Street elim (65cc milled down to 58cc) as per sallee spec. 10.1:1 comp
P/N 2204, Edelbrock Hyd. Roller, Lift (.539” I, .548” E), Duration @ .050” (234° I, 238° E)

is this combo still relevant? Its from 5-8 years ago, any comments/suggestions???

383 with 500 hp using 195 AFR heads and a roller cam is a good combination. what parts are you using for your combination?

Ok i got ya. It says a speacial pair of afr 195 heads which means no longer 195s but ported out for more flow. Take note of the 500hp at 5700 rpm. Thats an engine that will need a 4000 rpm stall converter. Tq peak at 4600 is also pretty high. Hotrod mag has the same build they go into detail. Just google

Is this the motor you were talking about.

Yes this looks like it can be done. I do not think this will be much of a street motor. But certainly fun to drive.
500hp at 5700rpm is ridiculously LOW for a sbc. a 4-5,000 stall would be needed for racing but on the street a 2000-2500 should be more than adequate.
