Anybody run one of these? I am thinking of trying the combo, maybe even a 4 inch stroke crank. No 400 blocks allowed. Would it much better than a 383. I am planning on running 14 to 1 plus compression with a 350 cfm carb.

Thanks

just my humble opinion. I run a 395, 4.030 x 3.875 SBC. If I were to do it over again, I'd build the 383 instead. Although I finally got things sorted out, going with that long a stroke has just created me problems. You'll chase your **** all over the place with cams and carbs and timing, or at least I did.
