The short stroke is a BIG bore of 4.250 and 3.38 stroke.

Chrysler thought the short stroke was better. I had one NEW one in 66 and it was a pathetic hog. Wouldn't turn a tire. Period. 3.23 non posi. I moved on to a 400 Pontiac.
Oh yea, check out this discussion. You might find this enlightening as well lol.
400 Pontiac vs. 400 Chevy

Inevitably as usual it turned into a chevy is better debate and no engine will ever dethrone the chevy sb as king, king of the crap pile if you ask me. No other engine in history has ever been re-engineered from nut to bolt as this engine but its still the best engine in the world. Then again sheep are just as easy to lead. Baaaaaaaaahahahaaahaaaaaaa
