A stroker will last quite a long time depending on how you treat it and how high you rev it. A stock engine can go over 200k with real good care…a stroker will be less.
Are stroker engines reliable?
A few years ago stroker motors weren’t very reliable but with testing and redesigning now they are almost as reliable as a stock motor as long as you treat them right.
What is the benefit of a stroker motor?
A stroker kit increases an engine’s displacement by lengthening the stroke of the piston. In a kit will be bespoke engine components altered from OEM parts to achieve this increase in stroke. They allow the piston to travel further up and down the cylinder thanks to the use of a different crankshaft.
How long will a 347 stroker last?
Seriously, I keep reading the 347 stroker is unreliable by design and to expect a long life from one, in a primarily street application, be it mustang or truck is not realistic. I think the general consensus is, you can expect it to live to 40-60,000 miles but by then it would be worn out.
How much horsepower does a 383 stroker engine have?
That combo would probably make around 465 hp and nearly 500 lb-ft, but at less rpm. But never mind that. The point here is 502 lb-ft at 4,700 rpm and 500-plus horsepower from 5,700-6,200 rpm.

Can you turbo a stroker engine?
Probably not. I say stroker motors do well on a big single better than a smaller non stroked motor because torque numbers are usually higher in the lower rpms and this offsets the later spool time of a larger turbo. When it comes to high rpm power the non stroked motor shines.
How much HP does a stroker kit add?
So, as a given rule, the more cubic inches an engine is, the more power it will make. However, the horsepower output will largely depend on the overall combination you are using. We could take a 500″ short block and with stock heads and a mild cam, it might make around 450-475 horsepower.
What does Stroker mean in engines?
A stroker engine is basically just an engine that has had the stroke increased to more than was originally from the factory. A stroker kit is a collection of components that make building a stroker engine possible. … By increasing the stroke of the engine (and also the bore, too) you can increase the size of the engine.
Does boring out an engine increase horsepower?
Boring an engine involves using machines to widen and taper the cylinders. From a performance standpoint, boring an engine could give you more horsepower and torque, as it will change the engine’s displacement. In general, the greater your engine’s displacement, the more power it can create. …
Does a stroker motor sound different?
Not really. The sound change would most likely be due to other parts of as package like headwork, different valves, camshafts, etc. If the only mod is the actual stroker stroker, there may be a tiny change in sound due to added displacement, but nothing radical or choppy. Maybe just a slight deepening in tone.
Is a 347 stroker reliable?
The 347 stroker will last a long happy life as long as the machine work is good and you take your time assembling it right. Just be sure the block, all parts and the area your working in is very clean and double and triple check your bearing clearances.
How much does it cost to build a 347 stroker?
Well you figure a good set of heads is gonna cost about $1000 american and a rotating assemby for a 347 stroker is about another $1000. Thats at least $2000 in parts already, then you figure the cam and intake and labor and everything.
How many MPG does a 383 stroker get?
That’s about 0.75 MPG. Around-town gas mileage is about 14 – 16.
How much does it cost to turn a 350 into a 383 stroker?
Re: Building a 383 Stroker, costs and challenges
You can put a 383 together to handle about 400-450 horses for probably $1500-$1600. That would be a short block. It’s probably possible to build it for around $1200 everything off a 400 and 350 except for new pistons, rings, and bearings.
What year is the best Chevy 350 engine?
The LT-1 was the last and arguably greatest of the old fuel-guzzling, emissions-spewing 350 engines. Those original LT-1s from 1970 will go down as some of the best engines of their time.
What’s the difference between a 383 and a 383 stroker?
It gets the extra inches from having only a larger bore, it still uses the stock stroke. A 383 Stroker is just the opposite, It uses the stock size bore but uses an aftermarket crank to get a longer stroke.
