    Talking sleeve it

    On that mill, all you can go is 383 cubes. Anything else and you will need a ls2/6.0L iron block, to go a stroker.

    I just finished my 396 stroker, thats with a 3.903 bore on a stock LS6 block. I used a 4.125 crank your 383 uses a 4.000 stroke
    Eagle makes a 393 stroker kit

    Thats cool that you can stroke it that much out on that bore. Only down side is that its not a square motor. I wonder if there will be any type of premature wear issues. I bet the liners had to be cleared for the connecting rods.

    no premature ware, thats why I used 6.250 rods, for the rod angle to the cylinder wall. thats also why Eagle uses a 6.200 rod on there 393 stroker kits


    I used a Callies crank, lunati rods and pistons

    12 psi of boost on a stock motor and #4 piston broke and cracked the liner and the block.12 psi was not smart on my part -- --- 402 stroker with forged internals is the next stop.
