I have very similar 383. 268xfi, afr 1040s, 700r4 and 3.07 but with a miniram. I bought a relatively cheap 2400 unit from FTI and i think it works well in town and highway. I donno if you've planned this far but I used the hooker 1-3/4" tubes and dropped in a stealth in-tank replacement pump. 30lb injectors worked in mine.
FWIW i made 483 crank hp and 460 tq. Torque was never less than 400 between 2700-6200.

I don't know if you have installed it yet, but the throttle pressure cable to the trans. MUST be installed prior to assembling the plenum onto the runners. I have a very similar engine, 5.7" rods, a bit more cam, and I love it. Plan on working on the tune. Nice work!

VERY nice build. I'm in the process of putting my 383 together. They recommended an 8" diameter dampener but I heard someone say they had problems with it hitting the crossmember and had to go smaller. Can you tell me what size, brand balancer (or if Jim can chime in) you are using, and I'm assuming it will clear...
Thank you!!

You don't want to use a 8" damper. You will have problems hitting the cross member. This is a 6.5" damper external balance. The machine shop actually supplied it. I think it a Pioneer brand damper
