You would have to stroke the Olds motor about .250" and bore it .060 to achieve this, the stock olds engine is undersquare with a 4.125 bore size and a 4.25 inch stroke. You can achieve 468 cubes by simply boring it .060. I'm not sure if the cost of a stroker crank would be worth the 25 cubic inches you would end up with. More cubes would be nice, but this engine has a really long stroke as it is, and you could probably spend your dollars more effectively in other areas {like a set of Edlebrock cylinder heads!}
