those are big heads for a 383, be sure to have the right valve springs installed correctly for the cam. What's with that cam anyway? is it 255/[email protected] lift? if so, why only 504 lift? if it's advertised duration it's way too small, it will never let your engine get up to an RPM suitable for those heads.

THE 255/265 IS @ .050. WITH THAT IN MIND WILL IT BE ENOUGH ? WHAT WOULD YOU SUGGEST FOR HOT STREET, I ASKED THE TECH AT DOUG HERBERT AND THIS WAS HIS SUGGESTION, #CCR4, WHAT'S THE BIGGEST SIZE`INTAKE RUNNERS DO YOU THINK I SHOULD USE ? THANKS

I don`t think that cam is too big for a 11:1 383 but the lift is pretty low for the duration. With your heads flowing as good as they do, I would run 1.6 rockers to get the lift up or change cams. My buddy ran a similar motor and ran a Crower 00351 cam. It was something like 254/[email protected] .525/.543 106 LSA. Ran really good in a big old 62 chevy truck.
