ss#2, I run a 383 in my mod and love it. It pulls like a freight train from corner to corner. I turn mid-6's to 7K on a .3mile track. The car at times can seem it has to much motor coming off the corner, but I'm getting better at feeling the throttle and getting the car setup better.

Sick&Twisted - Recommended / ideal RPM's don't depend on the track or won't vary from track to track... that is all determined by the engine, now where in teh RPM range you run will be a function of the track and overall gearing...

SS#2 - nobody can answer that because it's pure speculation without exact combo info - what I'd suggest is get a combo that's thought out and the components are appropriate for the HP & RPM goal that you've got. (i.e. no stock rods and bolts on a 600 Hp 383 at 8500 RPM) I'd then run all the #'s on one of the dyno simulation software programs... that should get you close to the power curve where the engine will make it's power, now gear it for the track that you run to use the most of that power curve and then once assembled run it on a real dyno to check and make adjustments from there....
