No, it's not a long block at that point...
It's a fully assembled short block with the cam of your choice.
They are building a zero deck 383cid short block for me right now with
4-bolt mains, 6" rods and raised ring hyperuetectic pistons with a 18cc
dish, slightly more expensive than your basic 383 stroker motor but well
5.7" rods with a 3.75" stroke gives you a 1.52:1 rod ratio......
6.0" rods with a 3.75" strokes gives you a 1.6:1 rod ratio.....
The ideal rod ratio is 1.75:1......
my goal is to combine the high revving attributes of a 350 with the brute
torque of a 400.
