383 Stroker Engine Parts ETCGDadsTruck

Here is a video overview of the parts I’m using for my 383 stroker build. It’s not too crazy mainly because the truck will be daily driven on the street. However, this engine has the potential to be a powerful little mouse. I can’t wait to get this engine together and in the truck to find out. Better yet, I can’t wait to see what dad thinks when I’m done.

I’ve come up with a name for the new engine, #DT383. I’m sure you can figure out what the “DT” means. (Dads Truck).

If I get this finished in time, you’ll be able to see it in person during the Hot Rod Power Tour 2019.
