Full Answer

The Chevy 350 series small block is considered the standard in domestic swaps. Its low cost supplemented by availability of parts make the 383 a cheap and effective venture.

A standard 383 stroker build uses the bottom end of a 350 engine and a custom fitted 400 series crankshaft. The crankshaft increases the stroke of the pistons to 3.75 inches as opposed to its stock rating at 3.48 inches. Although it is a considerably small difference, the longer stroke substantially increases the horsepower and torque output of the engine.
