I believe that would work but, I have no idea.. lol. I have research to do… if I could just do a longer stroke (assuming the bores are good), that would be ideal. Just need to keep a close eye on tolerances.
Bore it to 3.898" and use off-the-shelf LS1 parts, stock or forged depending on your end goal and budget. Also, you can drop in a 4" crank and have a 383. 4.8, 5.3 and 6.0 all use the same crank so you'd have to go aftermarket to get more cubes with a crank. It'll be fine at 6,000-6,500 RPM. It'll be an iron block LS1, so pretty much whatever an LS1 can take, yours should be able to handle a little more.
