What's in it now? A pre-'86 Chevy 350 block will accept a Chevy 307 crankshaft, & the combination makes a 327. Use 327 pistons & rods from either engine.

You'd have to have a large journal 327 crank. Basically what he said above is fine. Really you could use your 5.7 rods and pistons from your 350 to make it a 327.
The two motors are the same except for the crank..
stock 350 uses 4" bore x 3.50 stroke 5.7 rod
stock 327 uses 4" bore x 3.25 stroke 5.7 rod

Be nice if I had a 350 to start with. My poor 78 El Camino suffers from a bad case of stock 2bbl 305ism.

I'll have too look around for a 350 in good shape to start with.

hehe oh sorry... well you could always punch it out and make a 311 with it .
Going from the 305 to the 350 will make a big difference course if you want more torque go with the 383
These kind of talks always make me think of the tool man! MORE POWER!!!! (grunts!)

Anyway good luck with your search, 350's arn't too hard to find.

It's for a 5th gen El Camino that's a daily driver. I like to be different, and I've always wanted a 327. I'm really don't need a torque monster, just want a decent running street car.
