Chevy 383 stroker build

The engine made 380 hp and 380 ft lbs of torque. The torque is so low because the pull starts at 3000 rpm. The torque was in the downward trend by then. A couple of valves were adjusted too tight and the balancer rubbed the timing cover but other than that it ran great. It also ran 75-80 lbs of oil pressure which is great. I will try and put the video of one of the pulls on here tomorrow. The engine needs a bigger carb and a spacer to raise the carb. The teacher we could see 400 hp with that. We will try it Monday and see.

Thanks guys! BK this engine was around the $2000 mark to build other than the heads, my partner somehow got them for free, and it can easily handle up to 600 hp. With the rotating assembly we used no block clearancing was needed. It was pretty much a bolt in kit. The only bad things about the LS engines are the cost of them. Other than that they are great engines.
