Hey guys,  I will have results soon!  I didn't want to install the 440 until my 383 was sold, and it just sold last week.  So I should have a big update in 2-3 weeks on how this combo worked out...

Hey guys, I finally got the 440 installed, and running.  We broke in the cam at my cousins garage and noticed it didnt sound right when we were done and let the rpms come down to an idle.  So I trailered it to the guy who did the engine work and he quickly realized it was only running on 4 cylinders, and making an excessive amount of clatter under the valve covers.  Sure enough he removed the covers and 3 out of 4 push rods went right through the rockers on one side and 1 of 4 on the other side.  Attached is a video of it running on 4 cylinders after the half an hour cam break in process.

The engine builder replaced the bent push rods, and replaced the original rockers with some expensive crane rockers.  Its running better now, or at least on 8 cylinders anyway.  It still needs to gone through and have the timing set up, carb, etc.  I can tell you this, the Whiplash cam does have an extremely radical idle.  Here is a video of the stock 383 running with long tube headers, 3 dual exhaust, h-pipe, and flow master super 10 mufflers.

Here is a video of the 440 with the exact same exhaust system.  Its a little hard to tell in the videos, but the 383 was surprisingly quiet and reserved with this exhaust system.  The 440 however is insanely loud.  It honestly sounds like open headers, it sounds like a drag car.  Every time I fire it up my neighbors all come to their windows to see what the noise is all about.  Apparently it actually shakes the windows of the house directly across from us, lol.

That 440 with the whiplash cam sounds great. I couldn't really tell how loud it was but I liked it with that exhaust system.
