aawwwwww................whassamatter, little one ?
did hobbsey get all embarrassed and wet himself when I showed where he
screwed the pooch ?
does it hurt hobbsey's tender widdle feelings to have his major fuck-up
does it crush poor little hobbsey's ego to point out that he's a
post-snipping, content-forging asshole ?
tough shit, boy, if you want to run with the big dogs, be prepared to have a
major chunk bitten outa your ass when you expose it for all the world to see

350 CID 4" bore 3.48" stroke
4 X 4 is bore squared
X .7854 is something to do with pi but I can't remember what
X 8 is the number of cylinders
X 3.48 is the stroke
4 X 4 X 0.7854 X 8 X 3.48 = 349.848576
5.4?? actually 5.3
327?? actually 325
Seems like you don't know much about the engine that you're running down.
My previous two new trucks were a Chevy with a 350 and a Dodge with a 360
and my current GMC 5.3 is noticeably more powerful than either of them. It
also gets much better mileage. Wait till it's broken in, then see what you
I apparently know more than you - I called it a 327 and not a 325. :-)
(cu in / cc) 327 / 5328
Bore & stroke
(in / mm) 3.78 x 3.62 / 96 x 92
On paper my 03 327 has more HP and torque than my 00 Yukon 350 or 99
Suburban 350; but my Avalanche is quite a bit slower than either of those
Definitely gets about the same gas mileage. About 14.6 over the first 5,000
miles for the 03 Avalanche (90% highway miles). My Suburban does about 16
on the highway (give or take).
That could take forever - I am using Mobil 1 in the vehicle.
The GM 5.3/327 is 285 HP, 325 lb-ft.
bore and stroke is 3.78 x 3.62
Mine runs strongly, so I don't think I have a lame motor; but it's just
gutless. I have to mash the accelerator to the floor just for it to hold 80
on the highway if I am going up an incline. BTW, I keep it in 4 auto, so
all power should be going to the rear wheels. My Suburban and Yukon with
the 350 have markedly more acceleration, IMHO. Now before you tell me
the 350 is a more powerful motor; the GM 5.7/350 is 255 HP and 335 lb-ft;
which is about the same animal as the 327. And my Burb and Yukon probably
weigh more than the Avalanche, so you would think that the Avalanche would
perform much better than the Burb.
