    A 383 is a stroked 350, not a "bored out" 350.

    Just put a 400 crank in your 350.

    Just doing the crank makes it a 377. It needs to be bored .030 over to actually produce 383 ci of displacement. Regardless of whether or not you believe it needs to be bored i would like it bored.

    And so i repeat my question. Where around the metro area can i get it bored properly?

    Gordy at Hard Seat Service can hook you up. He used to run the red rooster machine shop, has everything in a very clean garage, and builds plenty of the local circle track guys motors.

    Otherwise there's Motors by Gosh or Wheeler for a bit more

    I know that, but going by what you said, that you wanted to bore your 350 to a 383, any reasonable person would assume that you knew little about engines.

    i did a 383 with a 4.185 bore and a 3.48 stroke, was a 18 degree head and reved to 8900 rpms. it can be done with just boring and now stroking but that also was a dart block.

    only did it for a cube class that had to be under 390 cubes with stoke stroke stuff


    i like steve vermeer at induction research. he did my turbo motor and no problems what so ever and is doing my 2jz for my mustang swap

    I can't point you to a shop, since I am in Houston but Tommy Johnson motorsports is a good source for a forged rotating assembly with forged pistons and 6 inch rods for a SBC, they are in Denver, they are redoing the website but you can call them at 800-628-0567

    Just for clarity a stock 350 4.0 inch bore with a stroker crank of 3.76 gives you 377 cubes, a .030 over 4.03 bore gives you a 383 . Any decent machine shop can do the bore, but typically the block will need to be clearanced for the longer stroke, assuming you are using a stock block.

    Forget Tommy Johnson, just talked to them, they are no longer a good source, they are selling scat and eagle nowdays at standard retail,used to have their own stuff at around 700 to 900 depending.
