    Not sure what a "STARKER KIT" is but an Eagle or SCAT STROKER kit are excellent products.
    OR he can buy a Genuine GM 383 that has a 4.000" bore and a 3.800" stroke.
    Buy it as a short block, change cams add heads etc like yours and he's done.

    Then the first sentence of my post applies. Summit, Jegs, Northern Autoparts ETC sell the kits and you can use 5.7 or 6" rods, Forged or Hyper pistons, dished, flat or domed pistons. 5/64" or 1/16th rings. The choices are endless and the parts are good.

    The skipwhite kit is a good kit if you get them to switch to the better scat pro comp rods. The probe pistons are very strong, hastings makes good rings, the scat crank is good and the king bearings are excellent. Cant really go wrong with that kit if you get it with the better rods.

    Internal is best. Call up skipwhite and see if they will do the above kit with scat pro comp rods and .040 probe pistons.
