ohh ok..how much does that extra bore help? i dont know a lot about boring and such, i havent gotten that far in my learning to know how much it helps...i mean an extra 5 inches is an extra 5 inches so i know its good for something.

its not an extra 5" per say just increase the standard bore by .030" that's only 30 thousandth of an inch suppose to increase horsepower

Really not gonna make a noticeable difference. Mostly it comes from a necessity rather than a power increase method. When you tear down an old motor & notice a ridge at the top or scoring in the cylinder, it becomes necessary to bore out the cylinders. Pretty much as simple as that. Here's a formula to follow:

Displacement = (bore) x (bore) x (stroke) x (# of cylinders) x (.7854)

I have a 355ci roller. you get a 350ci and bore it .030 over no difference of stroke or internals. it isnt a 383 stroker until you get a 400ci crank and flywheel or flexplate and usually you change the rods to 6" rods but you dont always have to

Stick with 5.7" rods on a 383. I know 6" rods are an option, but then you get into more block clearances that need to be made, small base circle cams, & also the pin will be higher into the piston. I believe it actually cuts into the bottom ring land. Someone want to double check me on this one?
