    Hi, yes after reading your post I tried joining again as there was a problem with registration when I first tried 6 months ago.

    Hopefully there will be some local meets when the world gets back to normal

    Is it possibly a 305ci block with a 400ci (3.75") crank?? This would give about 5.5L.

    Hi Turbofreak, any follow up on this re. block casting number or info? I’m intrigued....

    Some rather crude calcs for 327ci SBC at +0.060” gives a displacement of just over 5.5litres (4.060” bore, 3.25” stroke) so it’s certainly possible, although unusual. +0.060” could be potentially problematic for a performance build.

    Thanks!

    Hi Myles

    That’s what I mentioned above as a possible, what do you think? I don’t have the experience to know if a +0.060” overbore is possible on a 327?

    Well, a lot has happened since this thread started, just not on my build

    Yes, it is possible but getting close to the limit, depends on the block, core shift and all that.
