A stock 350ci block with a 400 crank (machine work required) will give you a 377. If you use .030 bore and pistons that will give you the 383ci. Its not recommended to bore over .060 and I say .040 is far as you should go. But the short answer is No.

Ok yea this guy was saleing a 350 that was rebuild n he said it. Was bored over n now a 400. I just did no if it sounds right

Doing an overbore on an engine is not a performance modification, it's simply done to clean up the cylinders from years of wear and tear when you rebuild it. The 400 block is a complete different casting all together as it also has larger main bores than any other SBC ever made.

Did u see the link i posted from cragislist

O.k. No way, A stock motor bored to .040 is just shy of 357.

Not all 350 blocks can become 383's. Some cannot be modified to clear the 400 crank. A Dart block can easily go to 450 cubic inches.
