Checked. It is clearenced. The rods are 5.7. And the pistons are 40 over. And the cam lobes are grooved and pitted. And three rockers are halfway on the valves.

The block has been clearenced. But the oil pan has not. But then again it has been painted or aftermarket so I can't say for 100%. And even with 5.7" rods?

383 or no?

Ok I was wondering if my block has been stroked. I know it has .040 over. But I don't know about the crank. I have attached 2 pictures. Take a shot. Thanks.

Kinda depends on what is in it. I don't know the true ci. I was told 383 when I bought the car. But it's not putting down the power to be one. So I don't know.
