Smile 383 project

Hey everyone!
My name is Christian and I am brand new to the forum.
I have just purchased my first ls1 block which came out of a 99 camaro and have huge plans for it.
What has already been done:

Head work:
241 heads
Hot tanked
Sandblasted them
Valve reseating and three angle cut
AFR dual valve springs rates up to .650 lift
Ls1 corvette rockers+shafts
7.375 chrome moly Texas speed pushrods

Block work:
Hot tanked
Comp camshaft 230/230 112 LSA 5.91 lift
Re-sleeved cylinder from wrist pin damage

Just a couple weeks in so I'm still gathering all my parts that I need
I have a long way to go but my plans are to order a 383 rotating assembly and over bore the block to 3.903!
Rotating assembly will be purchased in the next week or so

So to recap
First ls1 motor
Stroking it to a 6.3 383ci
Spending boat loads of money

Any input or recommendations are welcome!
I will be doing an n motion single roller timing set as well as using ls7 lifters
Also plans for a melling high pressure oil pump
For those interested:
The rotating assembly includes an eagle forged crank,
Eagle h beam 6.125 rods with arp rod bolts, mahle 3.093 6cc pistons with rings, and all main and rod bearings!
The whole assembly comes balanced

I'll keep you guys posted on progress
And I will post a build thread when I have enough pictures to keep you guys happy!

why are you using 241 heads and such a moderate cam for your 383?

can always go bigger later
Couldn't pass up the deal for the heads and cam
I got them next to nothing so it was well worth it.
I'll be getting more than enough power for what I need it for.
Looking into a set of 317s and a 233/239 cam later down the road
Will be doing the porting and polishing myself so it will take some time with the 317s
