    I think 4 hours with some rubbing compound and some wax and that thing will look brand new.

They company wasnt too cooperative either.

    And dont ask the parts stores for a 2.8 frame mount, you;ll be asking all day, just ask for a 2.8 motor mount, thats just how it is...
    AFR had a couple of problems with a few sets of their heads. But, customer service is very good. I've havn't had any AFR heads yet, but have dealt with Tony from AFR a few times. He usually goes out of his way to correct any customer service problems. Or any dealing with customer relations. Very good guy to deal with.


    I've never heard of those heads before. Im not a fan of that intake either.

    I have a set of Dart Iron Eagles that I paid exactly $1000 for. I bought them bare for $600, paid $200 for valves and such and another $200 to have the work done on them. I have had several sets of these and never a problem.(2 sets were bought used)

    I am also using that same intake but in polished form, and haven't had any problems with it. It is exactly the same as an Edelbrock without the price.

    Otherwise, I have pretty much the same motor you are looking to build, as far as the short block is concerned. I have the forged "I" beam rods though. I would get the 72cc chambers to keep it pump gas friendly unless you go with an aluminum head. Which is what I am wishing I had done now...just to save a bit of weight....

    Awesome, what kind of compression are you running and whats your estimated horsepower? Are you using the stock rear axle?

    What is a good cam to run? I want something that will lope like a drag truck...lol. This is a fun truck, not a daily driver so a wild cam is ok.

    Id figure out what heads your gonna run, and match the cam to it. Would you rather have a truck thats faster, or has more lope?

    Blazin Low's truck sounds very mean. Good lope to it. Its only a 350 though, bigger motor's gonna take more cam.

    I think, its around 236/240 duration. If your heads will flow enough for it, Id recommend a 1.6 rocker too. More lift, and a little less duration, will usually make as much power, and be a little more street friendly.

    Personally, Id run as much lift as you can get away with.

    Ok so once I figure out what heads I am gonna run then you can help me match a cam for it.

    mine estimated is 516hp and 505 torque. I am running a hyd. roller cam that is 244/248 dur and 542/560 lift..runs very well. I built mine after a motor in Car Craft..exactly..and those were the numbers that they came up with. I have better heads and an 850 Speed Demon where as they used a 750 DP, so I may have a little more on them...

    And yes, I am still running a stock rear...3.42 richmand gears with an powertrax posi..seems to be just fine so far..but it doesnt hook either...

    Ok so after doing research on heads literally all day at work I have determined that a 215cc intake, 72cc chamber volume, and 2.02/2.05-1.60 valves is ideal for a 383 setup. With my all forged stroker kit this will net around 9.8:1 compression which should be safe for a 100 shot in the future. I have my eye on a set of Dart Pro I heads with the specs mentioned above. What do you guys think?
