How do I build a 383 stroker?

I have a 71 chevelle I just bought, and it has a rebuilt 350 bored 30 over. The motor only has about 12k on the rebuild. I wanted to use it as a daily driver, but the gas millage is worse then I thought so I am just going to say screw it and build torque and forget the gas millage. Can I build it into a 383 using the rods and pistons in it now? I was thinking about just buying a 383 crank and dropping that in ( one that is set up for a 350). I want to throw in a new set of rings while I have it apart, but I want to avoid getting into reborring it since I would think the piston wall should be in good shape. what machine work do I need done on the block? and can I use the 355 pistons and rods? any info would be greatly appreciated!

You can use your pistons only if you use the shorter rods from the 400. If you use the 400 crank, 350 rods and special pistons - that is the best way.
