What's up fellas,

I have posted a few questions here dating back two years to when I first picked up my 350 block. Members of this forum assisted me in parts choice and troubleshooting. Also it was you guys who convinced me to build a 383. Well I am absolutely elated to report that today I started it for the first time! Her home is a 79 monte carlo. We spent 5 days working from dawn to dusk doing the swap and several days troubleshooting. Now she fires up like she can't wait to get out of the gate. She sounds AMAZING and I owe all of those who advised me along the way a huge THANK YOU!

Build for the curious:
-Scat rotating assembly
-19cc dishes
-dart 64cc heads
-Lunati voodoo 268 hydraulic flat tappet
-Edelbrock performer intake+carb (750cfm)
-HEI streetfire distro
-Hooker competition headers

Many thanks!
-Doug

Best of Luck. Bob is right we don't get a lot of response to the Finished Products, just the Misery of misinformation during the build. Enjoy your Toy.

Thanks guys. Been driving her for a few days now. She's running really well! Might post a slideshow sometime. We had a blast putting this thing together, got some real humorous pictures.
