Are all 383's strokers?

I have a 350 'punched out' to a 383. Is that a stroker engine or what
is the difference.
Thx

the dumb answer > no, not all 383 are strokers dodge has a 383 big block

no thats not a stroker a true stroker is a 350 block punched .030 over with a 3.75" sb 400 crank {which has to be ground down to fit the 350 mains.}

These days you do not need to grind down a 400 crank, they make plenty of 3.75" stroke cranks with 350 mains. They have them in all price ranges.

If your 350 is not a 383, then it is a stroker. There is no other way to get 383 cubic inches out of a 350 block. What you have is a 350 with .030" overbore and a 3.75" stroke crank. If you do not have the 3.75" stroke crank then you have a 355 (with the stock 3.50" stroke).

see i don't understand the original question then. he says his 350 is "punched out" to a stroker. the way i see it or understand it is > "punched out" = bored x-amount over, so therfore it can't be a stroker

we need more info
