sleeving a 400

Is it worth it to sleeve a 400 small block that is 40 over I was going to have it bored 60,but the guy at the machine shop said the bottom of the cylinder has moved.Would I lose alot of power just building a 383 stroker.I am trying to get the car in the 11s,should I sleeve the 400 hundred or use a 350.How much does it cost to have on sleeved? Any info would help

Well, if you got a combo that is capable of 1 HP per cubic inch, you talking about 24 horsepower difference between the two. I personally wouldn't be a bit afraid of a properly sleeved block, in fact I've got one. I also like the additional unshrouding that the larger bore provides. But Im partial to 400's also.

I like the 400 as well. You can sleeve it back to stock 400 bore with no issues.
