440 Crank in a 383

It would a decent engine but you will just have a slightly smaller short deck 440, it would be a 440 with a 0.070" overbore. Even a 400 only gonna be a slightly bigger overbored short deck 440 with a 3.75" crank. I see no point stroking less than 3.91" for 400/440 and 4.25" for a 383 for 496.

I'd go stock 3.38" or just go with a 440 or if I was gonna go to the trouble of stroking the 383 at least go with 496.
