How To Build a Chevy 383 Stroker - Part 1: Block & Crank
This is a new multi part series on how to assemble a small block Chevy 383 stroker motor (actually it is an internal combustion engine - "motors" are electric - but I digress LOL).
MOST of the assembly applies to any small block engine. I have divided up the assembly procedure into many parts so you can skip to the specific part you are looking for, i.e: crank, camshaft, timing chain or how to adjust rockers.
This whole series was shot by myself with my iPhone so presenting, filming and assembling could all be done smoother but "ir-regardless" I hope it helps.
Thank you. Shannon http://www.corvettesandcustoms.org

2001 Camaro Z28 vs 2011 Mustang GT 5.0
My 2001 Camaro Z28 has an SLP Lid and SLP LM1 cat-back Exhaust, a 4 speed automatic with 2.73's, 67,000 miles.
My friend's 2011 Mustang GT (5.0) is completely stock, a 6 speed manual, with about 20,000 miles.
First race: Dig, Mustang misses 3rd gear.
Second race: Dig, Mustang short shifts 3rd gear.
3rd race: 30MPH roll.
4th race: 25MPH roll.
At the end of the race my friend confesses that he also left his traction control on.
