I run a 355 small block last year with 36 degress locked advance. If everything else being the same. Intake, cam, heads, carb, compression ratio(10 to 1), except being a 383. What should I run for timing? Also what change in jetting would I expect?

timing should be the same. Heads have more impact on timing than anything else.

Everything being the same and assuming you were jetted right on the 355 you might need to go down a little bit, but Id start with what you ahd last year.

Thanks! That was the direction I was headed but needed some assurance!
