I was just curious as to what you guys were running in your 383's that make tons of power. I am in the process of building a 383 with the goal of getting into the 500/500 club. I had origionaly thought that I would need a 4340 forged H-beam rods and a light weight piston like the JE/SRP type but after discussing it wiht the machine shop i think I might be over building. I would like the freedom to shoot it with a little nitrous 150-200 shot in the future if I get the bug. My question is do i really need all that expensive 4340 stuff or could I get away with a scat 9000 cast and a decent set of rods and a nice forged piston? I was quoted a price of $4500 for the short block with a moroso oil pan and pump, timing chain and Neil chance 3000 stall converter and a msd distributer. It really is a good deal but i was told i could cut the price in half if i went with cheaper stuff. What should I do?
