i got a 383 with a TCI TH350 tranny on a trade the other day.. The 383 had a broken crank twords the back of motor. looked like it was cracked before and finally broke. i was told it was pry from bumping the tranny and went into a lower gear and snapped it. Anyway its got stock heads and nothing fancy inside. Its got 1-5 roller rockers and not to sure about the cam.Im looking to get some power out of this. Any good suggestions on heads and crank? Money is somewhat of any option but i want this bitch to scream but still run pump gas.

I imagine they downshifted and took it up into a high RPM range and killed it
Depends on how much the heads flow

Compression isn't going to do much if the heads flow like shit

350 stroker crank = 383 crank
lol or even camel humps or the POS heads used in the 80s
