Re: 383 stroker specs and questions
Maybe list out the parts including part numbers, could help us decipher what you have and what you could change.
As I mentioned earlier, working with brand X heads to compete with brand Y heads sometimes isn't financially feasable. Did the porter supply flow sheets with your heads? How much are you willing to spend to achieve what you're looking for?
It's a true shame you are seeking information now after spending the money rather than doing your homework before building the engine. I have it happen once in a while, a guy walks in with his own theory on what will work. Maybe he has a bunch of mismatched parts like you do. I try my best to steer him in the right direction, but some people won't listen, they know more than I do even though I've been doing this as a career for 16+ years, and as a hobby some years prior.
Case in point, we have a fellow building a 383 stroker, bought an eagle crank, some pistons, etc. Tried a few times to tell him the crank wasn't even close to being balanced to his components, but he has it set in his mind that it will be OK. Who knows, maybe he's right. My money is on the engine shaking like a SOB, hopefully I'm wrong.
