Crank has to be turned down ~0.200" on the mains to fit a 350 block. SBC 350 pistons would only work if you used stock 5.565" 400 SBC rods. Do a search- there are exactly 9,846 threads on this.

Here is some info on pistons using 5.7 rods. Use KB100 flat top pistons with 5.7 rods and 76cc chamber heads to have a 9.58 compression ratio. Use KB102 with 5.7 rods with 64cc chamber heads for a 9.67 compression ratio. Like was advised do a search on this site on building a 383 cid. The block will also have places that will need to be clearanced.
