There is a guy at our dirt track that runs a 377 and that thing will run with the 434ci engines.The guy with the 377 dosent have anywhere near the money in his motor than the other guys do either.If i could have found a good 400 block I would have built a 377 instead of a 383.

BTW a 377 isn't actually a "stroker"

The terms "stroked" and "destroked" are used pretty much interchangably to reference any engine in which the stroke has been changed from stock dimensions.
A properly designed 377 will run circles around a 383, in my opinion. Short stroke, large bore engine has a much better rod ratio (especially when 6.00" rods are used) and the bore/stroke ratio is better. Then the larger bore can be used with bigger valves, with out shrouding them, etc., etc.
Many guys spend a lot of unnecessary time looking for a 400 block with 4-bolt mains. Don't worry about it, a 2-bolt main block has better webbing and splayed 4-bolt caps can be added for the ultimate bottom end.
