383 stroker

Does anyone have any first hand experience with a 383 stroker engine? I am installing one in my '73 Z28 with a super T-10 Borg-Warner. Any does or don't would be helpful since I am just about to have my mechanic start the rebuild.

Re: 383 stroker

I built my own from forged parts, Scat crank, Compstar rods, Srp pistons. I spec'd out my block to arrive at 0 deck, did my own internal clearancing but did not need as much as I thought as the Scat profiled crank and Compstar rods helped a bunch.

This was an internal balance motor, 350 10/20 hi nickel content block. If I had to do it again, I would go for more stroke in a LittleM block.
