A 383 is called a 383 because it displaces approximately 383 cubic inches. There are many ways to arrive at that number.

You can figure the cubes yourself if you know the bore and stroke of an engine using this formula... bore x bore x stroke x # of cyls. x .7854

The most common 383 that you hear about is a stroker. 3.75 (400) stroke vs. 3.48 stroke(350). Also to get a true 383 the cylinders have to be 4.030" instead of the stock 4.00"

For example a 350 block not bored any with a 3.75 stroke would be something like a 378 or 379

A 350 block .060 over with a 3.75 stroke crank would be something like a 388.

I built my 1st 383 in November '05 and I am very pleased with it.

Any questions feel free to PM me.
