What is the benefit of a stroker motor?
A stroker kit increases an engine’s displacement by lengthening the stroke of the piston. In a kit will be bespoke engine components altered from OEM parts to achieve this increase in stroke. They allow the piston to travel further up and down the cylinder thanks to the use of a different crankshaft.
What is a 383 stroker engine?
The Chevrolet 383 Stroker is a hot rod engine never truly created in normal production for use in a specific car. The engine is essentially a Chevy 350 block, but uses a modified crankshaft from the Chevy 400 for increased stroke and as a result increased displacement.
What happens if the engine is stroked?
A stroker increases the internal engine stroke, which is the distance covered by the piston inside the cylinder bore. With the increased distance covered by the piston, this enforces faster rotation of the crankshaft.
What’s the difference between a 350 and a 383 stroker?
The difference is stroke of cylinders. A 350 has a 3.48 length of stroke making and using 350 cubic inches of engine, stroked out it would be 3.75 per cylinder making your app a 383 cubic inch and much better volume of room for air/ fuel firing chamber.
Is a stroker engine reliable?
A few years ago stroker motors weren’t very reliable but with testing and redesigning now they are almost as reliable as a stock motor as long as you treat them right.
How much HP is a 383 stroker?
That combo would probably make around 465 hp and nearly 500 lb-ft, but at less rpm. But never mind that. The point here is 502 lb-ft at 4,700 rpm and 500-plus horsepower from 5,700-6,200 rpm.

How much does it cost to turn a 350 into a 383 stroker?
Re: Building a 383 Stroker, costs and challenges
You can put a 383 together to handle about 400-450 horses for probably $1500-$1600. That would be a short block. It’s probably possible to build it for around $1200 everything off a 400 and 350 except for new pistons, rings, and bearings.
What year is the best Chevy 350 engine?
The 1975 version of the LT-1 ultimately succumbed to new emissions standards that brought its horsepower all the way down to 145 HP. The LT-1 was the last and arguably greatest of the old fuel-guzzling, emissions-spewing 350 engines. Those original LT-1s from 1970 will go down as some of the best engines of their time.
Is a big block better than a small block?
A big block engine is physically larger and weighs more than a small block.  Larger bores, longer strokes, bigger valves and ports can lead to truly astounding power production. If a small block is a quick and nimble welterweight boxer a big block can be devastating heavyweight.
What is the difference between a stroker engine and a normal engine?
A stroker engine is basically just an engine that has had the stroke increased to more than was originally from the factory. A stroker kit is a collection of components that make building a stroker engine possible. By increasing the stroke of the engine (and also the bore, too) you can increase the size of the engine.
How much horsepower does a stroker kit add?
So, as a given rule, the more cubic inches an engine is, the more power it will make. However, the horsepower output will largely depend on the overall combination you are using. We could take a 500″ short block and with stock heads and a mild cam, it might make around 450-475 horsepower.
Is the Chevy 400 a good motor?
Overall, the 400 SBC is a really good block. They do come with a bit shorter connecting rods (5.565″ compared to 5.700″ for the 350) than do most of the other SBC engines out there.
Why is a 327 better than a 350?
In the vehicle, it’s more of a matter of “gearing” than revs. A 327 with it’s shorter stroke would need shorter gears so it can GET to its revs, where a 350, with its slightly longer stroke and more torque output will pull a little taller gear than the 327 will.
How many MPG does a 383 stroker get?
Around-town gas mileage is about 14 – 16.
How can I tell if my motor is a 383 stroker?
A 383 is a stroked 350 so the block will still look like a 350 block and have the same numbers. The only way that I know of for sure is to look at the bottom end of the engine. It will have to be ground for clearance and it might have markings on the crank if they used an aftermarket crank.
