    Okay, I hope this doesn't sound to different, but the only engine i've ever seen in a vehicle is a 350, so I was wondering, how much of a difference is there in WIDTH between a 454 (bored to whatever) and a 383. I know there will be a difference, but how much? Considerably alot? I'm just planning for the future and whatnot. And also, what is a 454 bored .030" over, and 0.060 over? I can find out myself in a book, but I am too lazy right now... Thanks all!

    there is no difference between a 350 or a 383 demensioin wise anyway a 383 is a borad out 350 with a 400 crank. /forums/images/graemlins/peace.gif
    the 454 is a bit bigger but not by too much.
    still fit it in rally nice to a fullsize truck or blazer
    might be tight in a midsize blazer /forums/images/graemlins/dunno.gif
    ive seen lost of pic of both but too tired to find them /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif

    454 .030 is 460.

    a 383 is the same overall size as a 350, the 454 is alot bigger.

    No it doesn't....{lenty of room in a Blazer engine bay for a BBC.

    To find engine size, figure it out yourself. The equation is, bore x bore x stroke x no. of cylinders x .7854....
