Lower deck hieght gave it a shorter stroke too but a 231 cid was maintained.. The factory heads are'nt the greatest flowing but were cast in a "space saving" fasion with "heart" shaped combustion chambers..
"Space saving" This means the heads are mostly hollow and very light considering what they are made of.. A complete head off a stock LS1 weights more dressed in aluminum than the 3800-II iron head.. If it had one more cylinder per head it would be heavier in iron..
10-bolt rear is also a weak unit behind a stock 3800 just as when it's behind an LS1, so beware when adding power.. just my .02
