When most people think of engine upgrades, they think of adding a turbo or supercharger. However, there are other ways to get more horsepower from your engine. One popular option is to install a stroker kit. Stroker kits are available for many different engines, but in this article, we will focus on the stroker kit for the Chevy Small Block engine, also known as the 355 stroker.

Advantages of a stroker engine
A stroker engine is a great way to get more torque and power from your engine. A stroker engine is an engine that has been modified by increasing the stroke of the crankshaft. This can be done by increasing the length of the connecting rods or using a crankshaft with a longer stroke. A stroker engine can provide up to 30% more power than a stock engine.
Are stroker motors reliable?
Yes, stroker motors are very reliable. In fact, a stroker motor is often considered to be the most reliable type of engine. The reason for this is that stroker motors are usually built for higher RPM and more power, so the crankshaft can handle the extra stress and heat.
Can you turn a 350 into a 383 stroker?
Yes, you can turn a 350 into a 383 stroker , but only if the 350 is a 4-cylinder, and not a V6. This is because the number of pistons in the 350 is four, while the 383 has six.
What makes a 355 stroker?
A 355 stroker is a engine build that uses a 3.55 inch crankshaft in combination with other piston and rod combinations to produce more displacement than a standard 350ci engine.
The stroker kit increases the engine’s cubic inches by using a longer stroke crankshaft. This results in more torque and horsepower which is ideal for street and strip applications.
