sorry another v8 thread

hey guys just have a few questions which im sure have been answered before and i apologize in advance but i had a look around and couldn't find a straight answer. i am doing a 383 stroked conversion on my vl (yes i know i go ls blah blah blah)

Q1: will a factory ecu handle it? i know it would limit tuning capabilities etc but was hoping to run one even just temporarily. engine mods are 1000cfm t/b, high rise manifold, lumpy cam etc. i know this is a very broad spectrum but just want an idea.

q2: how bad is it gonna be to get regod in nsw? i know it has to be engineered etc but ballpark cost? is running a 9ninch and t700 plus bigger brakes etc

q3: again i know its hard without knowing exact engine specs etc but what injectors would be capable? a few people have said bluetops but others have said it will struggle?

q4: what fuel system? pump?

im not looking at crazy power here guys just trying to get in on the road i miss my baby haha any help with these questions would be greatly appreciated. thanks
