Wanting to get some input on whether I should upgrade to a 383 stroker in a 71 camaro. My current 350 sbc engine has a solid Flat tappet cam that went flat so the engine is going to be rebuilt. I'm most likely going to put in a hydraulic roller in because I think I would get better performance out of it with lower maintenance. I will also need to change the pistons because it is currently a high compression motor (12:1?). My thinking is if I'm rebuilding the engine with a new cam, valve springs and I need to put new pistons, I'm basically just a new crankshaft away (and connecting rods) away from making it a stroker. I will not be building the engine myself so cost may be a factor in my decision, however, I would rather pay a little more to get it right the first time rather than redo it down the road again. Will making it a stroker cost that much (new crank, connecting rods, any machine work?) more considering what probably is going to be done anyway? I've gotten a couple of quotes for a rebuild and have ballpark figures of $6K-$8K. (Also, I realize I could go buy a crate engine for the same price but I want this engine). I have 4.11 rear end gears and a manual 4 speed for what its worth. Will I notice (feel) a difference between a properly built 350 and a 383 or will it not be that noticeable when driving? For example, will it put me in my seat more than a 350 by increasing the cubic inches by only 9.4% (33 cubic inches). I have searched this site and other forums about this topic but would appreciate any input that you may have.
