November 11, 2008i''m getting a old 350 that ran when it was taken out of the truck. i''m wanting to build a pretty stout motor for my truck. What do you think about a 383 stroker? i know it''s a 350 block with a 400 crank. What machine work would i have to get done to it? i''m on some what of a budget but this isn''t going to be a quick build so what do you think?
