Building a 383 right now with about 10.6 comp,old set of sportsman 2s with 2.05-1.60 bowl blend 62cc.Vic jr 750 dp,1 3/4 headers with 3" full exhaust.3500 stall,4.56 gears with 29x10 tires.3360 race weight.Basically taking my 350 combo with a 383 shortblock.Now the question which cam, comp cams cs-296AH-8 HYD 246 253 .050, .510-.507 lift 108 lsa or solid cam xs282s 244-252 520 540 lift 110 lsa.I have 1.5 and 1.6 rockers to choose from also.I kind of want to stick with a hyd because of a better chance of not wiping out the cam.Alot of horror stories with a solid cam not breaking in properly.I don't want to take out the inner springs either.Anyways trying for 11.80s is it possible with the hyd cam.Anybody running a hyd cam in the 11s without some expensive AFRS or some aluminum heads.

The 296 looks like the same Pat kelley had in his 350 in his 67 elky and it ran 11.50`s. I would think that would performa better in your 383. That 304 mega you have in your 355 would work pretty well in the 383 as well. I know a guy who ran that same set up but less compression and it ran hard. He never had it to the track but he beat a 11.90 car on the street.
Has anyone tried a xs 282 or a 294s with a similar combo running in the 11's
do a search on the 294S. There are a few guys on the camaro board that have run that cam into the 11`s. your 304 mega should be enough if you wanted to stick with a hydraulic. I remembered another guy I know with that cam in a 327 that ran 11.70`s in a 69 chevelle.
