It has been a long time since I have had the time to log in and chat about the progress of my build. So long that I lost my login information for my old account, so I started a new one. I am using a new email now and no longer have a way to recover my old login. My car is a 1973 Plymouth Duster that currently has a 318 2bbl/auto. It is very boring to say the least. Car has a Reilly Motorsports 4 link in the rear, with a Reilly Motorsports front end currently on order. The car is going to be a street machine/drag car on very limited occasions. Just looking to beat on my buddies with fox bodies and camaros. My 383 is .060 Over, has a steel 3.75" crank from 440 Source, eagle H Beam rods, Flat top diamond pistons with a 1.340 compression height vs the standard 1.320. Diamond only charged $56 to move the pin height, which saved us from having to deck the block further than a clean up pass. Heads are currently on order as well from Modern Cylinder head. They are going to CNC port a set of 440 Source heads to Max Wedge port, and install the correct springs to my camshaft, and also install a set of tool-steel spring retainers/locks. Intake manifold is going to be a Victor 383 port matched to the max wedge dimension on the head. Camshaft is going to be a Comp Cams Hydraulic roller, 23-713-9 .549/.544, 242*/248*, 110* I am not sure which rocker arms I will be going with as of yet. Nor the carburetor size, or headers. I would have loved to run trick flow heads, or Edelbrock heads, but the a/c bracket that I am going to run from Bouchillon that locates the compressor where the power steering pump normally resides, will not clear those heads. It gets very hot here in South Texas!
