Post 383 Stroker

Do 383 Strokers normally run hot on the street even if there pretty mild?

They may run slightly hotter due to the increased stroke, but I`ve never known them to have any cooling problems that wasn`t related to elsewhere such as blown head gaskets or bad thermostat and etc. we ran one in the mud races years ago, it ran a constant 185-190 with 180 degree thermostat.

What about a big block stroker motor? Say a 454 stroked-out? Would they runner any hotter or slightly hotter that a small block stroker would?

with the proper cooling system the stroked big block will not run any hotter than a stocker, its when you stsrt decreasing wall thickness by using massive (.100-.125")overbores that you start having heat problems. i ran big overbores on the street back in the seventies with a stock big block radiator and never had heat problems. but some others did usually from not using shrouds, improper spacing etc.
