What is needed to make a 350 into a 383 stroker?
A 383 stroker is basically built by installing the crank out of a 400 small block into the 350 block, the main bearing journals have to be machined to the 350 size. The most economical way to do this is to use the 400 rods, and the 350 pistons.
Why do they call it a stroker motor?
As its name implies, a stroker is where we increase engine displacement by increasing piston stroke. When we increase stroke, we take the piston deeper in the cylinder bore, which increases displacement. The longer the stroke, the greater the fuel/air charge. Remember, Ford stroked the 289 0.013 inch to achieve 302 ci.

How tall is the block on a Chevy stroker engine?
A quick deck clearance calculation for any piston and rod combo is block deck height – ½ stroke – piston compression height – rod length. So with a small-block deck height of 9.025, if we have a stroke of 4.00 inches, a compression height of 1.150 inches, and a rod length of 5.850 inches then: (4.00 /2) + 1.150 + 5.850 = 9.00 inches.
