The most common 406 is not a "stroker" but an over bored 400 as already stated.

A 383 can have a flat or peaky tq curve depending on how you build it, just like a 406 or even a 283.

Longer rods do slightly change an engine's characteristics, but longer is NOT always better.

I just had to post those corrections for the new guys that may find this thread through google and not know any better, most of the regular members here already know these things.
