I was thinking about what to do for the new powerplant i plan on constructing for my car and I've established some basics that I want. It will be carbureted with a Holley 4165 spread bore, it will be 383ci displacement and will maximize torque. Since I started planning I was always just thinking about stroking up my 351W block but then it donned on me that I could destroke a 400m to 383 and have a huge rod ratio. i know what you all are thinking Why would you want to get rid of cubic inches. I don't really know this idea just kind of hit me so I thought i would throw it to the internet and see what other people thought. So give me you input constructive, criticizing or otherwise.
