Re: ZZ383 cam advice needed
The zz383 is 9.7:1 compression I'm not familiar with the comp cam you listed , but that engine comes with a .509 lift intake & .528 lift on the exhaust.
Also 1FastZ is right they are behind on there motors. If you're not in a rush no problem, but if you're chewing at the bit it'll be a long wait. I had ordered a zz383 (not from salle) back in january & after waiting a month & having no idea when a may show up I started looking into building my own. I know everyones situation is different, but you can build a motor to make that much power or even more for less money. Remember also the zz383 only comes with hyper pistons & pm rods, but does come with a forged steel crank. It's a real nice motor don't get me wrong just not as good as a forged rotating assembly.
Just my opinion
and yes I canceled the order & will save approx $1500 building my own
