Which is the best LS engine?
In short, the best engine for your LS or Vortec swap is the one you can afford.
Sure, we would all love a shiny new LS3 crate engine from Chevrolet Performance or a rebuilt 5.3L long-block from Summit Racing, but once we crunch the numbers that’s not always possible..
Can you stroke a 283 Chevy?
A “stroker kit” for a 283 is another name for a small journal 327 crankshaft and a set of 307 pistons. Get the pistons in . 060 oversize, and you’ll end up with a 317 cubic inch engine.
Will 350 pistons fit in a 327?
350 pistons will need a 3.480 stroke crank. A large journal 327 block is the same as the 350 when you change the crank.
Why is a 327 better than a 350?
A 327 with it’s shorter stroke would need shorter gears so it can GET to its revs, where a 350, with its slightly longer stroke and more torque output will pull a little taller gear than the 327 will.
How much HP can you get out of a 327?
Rated at 375 hp, the fuel-injected 327 was a high-winding screamer, as satisfying to drive as any big-block. At the other end of the spectrum, the 327 was also offered at much more pedestrian power levels, as low as 210 hp (gross).
When did Chevy stop making the 327?
The last iteration of the 327 appeared in 1969 with a two-barrel carburetor and a 9-to-1 compression ratio that produced 235 horsepower and 325 foot pounds of torque, but by then another Chevrolet small-block had already appeared on the market and had begun stealing what thunder the 327 had left.
Did Chevrolet ever make a 327 4 bolt main?
They never made a 327 4 bolt main block. You can make one with a large journal 327 crank in a 4 bolt 350 block due to the same bore that they have.
What is the difference between a 327 and a 350?
The difference in the displacement comes from the crankshaft stroke. The 327 uses a 3.25 inch stroke, where the 350 uses a longer 3.48 inch stroke(thats what makes it bigger). Depending on the year of the block, the biggest difference in the block itself is the main journal size.
What is a 350 with a 327 crank?
A 327 crank in a 350 block would be a 327!!! Both have the same factory bore size 4.00. The stroke is shorter on the 327 it’s 3.25″, the 350 has a 3.48 stroke. all 327 cranks except 68 were SJ and all 350 blocks are LJ so there’s a very good chance the crank wouldn’t fit your block.
Can you stroke a 327?
As the others said, yes you can but it would be cheaper and wiser just to pick up a 350 block and stroke it, dress it up as a 327.
Will a 400 crank fit a 350?
You can’t just put a “stock” 400 crank in a 350 block. You need to have the main journals ground down because the 350 uses 2.449″ and 400 uses 2.649″ main journal sizes. But like tech suggested you can get aftermarket cranks that are designed to fit into 350 blocks with no machining.
