    not according to their descriptions. The block uses the Vortec intake bolt pattern (and ports) while the injection setup says '57-86, which is a different bolt pattern/port configuration.

    I don't know of any injection system except the Vortec specific (CPI) setup, and that would be a heck of a challenge to retrofit.

    Anyways, you might consider getting aftermarket heads with the "old" bolt pattern, so you get the best of both worlds: extremely efficient heads, without having to deal with the Vortec specific bolt pattern.

    Just call them up. They sell the intake to match the Vortec heads.

    i just called and found out that it's a long distance call so i'll have to wait until after work to call them but does any one out there have the type of set up i'm going after what kind of parts did you pick out? why? likes or dislikes?
    i'd like to end up with a motor that can put out 330hp with the torque to match and an efi system that comes with everything to do a complete instalation, like the edlebrock setup.
    thanks for everone's input.

    they give that number only to take or track orders to actually talk to some one they tell you to push option five and then give you 330 630-0240! that sucks i guess they don't want to talk to ya if your not willing to pay.

    I run the Edelbrock MPFI system with Vortec heads on my 383. I love it, the throttle response is incredible. If you need anymore info, let me know.

    I had the same problem calling Summit. Don't press any button from the menu, just stay on the line and you will eventually be directed to a salesperson.

    hey what kind of 383 did you get? where did you get it from? i've been thinking about sticking with a 350 because i can not find a 383 that does not come with a carb or a manifold. thanks for the info.
