To make a 327 out of a 283 block requires boring the block to 4" and using a 327 CRANKSHAFT, not rods.
As far as I know, the rods are the same.
You can accomplish the same thing by using a 350 block and a large journal 327 crank or a 307 crank. If you choose a 4 bolt 350 block you'll end up with a 4 bolt 327.
