Great choice of cylinder heads, used Airflow Research heads w/ comp porting on the last two 383s i've built, they make a great head.
What else is in the motor?

here are a few pics from mission races. it was the smoke fire and thunder weekend with lots of fast cars! my dad was doing his nhra licencing. his best time was a 9.84 but he figures if he changes out the torque converter he could drop half a second.he was leaving the line a 5000rpm but he should be around 7000.
he also had a problem with one of the heads something was installed upside down witch broke the rocker nut in half. the only way he caught in time was the valve cover had a dent in it!
