383 strocker kit

What are you asking for a crankshaft kit for a 383 cid? There is no crankshaft kit that turns a 350 cid into a 383 cid. You have to buy the crankshaft for a 383 cid and pistons for a 383 cid. The 350 pistons and the 383 pistons have different compression heights. You can use the rods from a 350 cid. This is why everyone buys a 383 rotating assembly. By the time you buy a crankshaft, pistons, rings, main bearings, and rod bearings separate it will cost almost as much as a rotating assembly. Here is an Eagle 3.750 stroke Chevy crankshaft for a 383 cid engine.

The professional machine shop operators who are members of this site have warned us over and over not to trust the quality control of Eagle products. Purchase at your own risk. Measure all dimensions carefully before blindly installing Eagle products.

David Vizard, professional builder and author, tells us that the Scat cast steel crank and Scat Pro Stock rods are good for 550 hp. He has been using them for years and reports that dimensions are right on the money and that he has never fragged a Scat crank or rod. Combine Scat pieces with a good-quality forged piston such as SRP for a bulletproof reciprocating assembly up to 550 hp. Do you want to make 500 hp like everyone else? Start looking at Air Flow Research cylinder heads to use with your combination.

This is a very broad question. To answer it will require some more info, like 1- or 2-piece rear main seal block, internal or external balance, 5.7" or 6" rods, cast or forged- or a combination, etc.
