If it is a 350 blk. it would be 2.875 crank, but 289 CI. But if it's a 283 BLK with a .030 over bore and a 3.00 (std 283 crank) it would be a 288 CI

Yep i agree with fast75vega, it's a run of the mill 350 blk and a 283 crank would not fit ( 3.00 VS 3.450 main jurnals) so if it's a 288/289 CI it would have to ba an after market crankshaft or it's not going to be a 288" motor.

Don't know why you would do it unless you where running a pounds per cubic inch deal. Powerhouse would depend on your point of view. Rev those little motors to the moon and they will make some power, try to lug them like a 408 and that is a different story.

I had a friend when i lived in PHX, in the late 80's that had a 292" Nickens and Brown motor in a Gen 3 X prostock car that would run 8.80's @ 162MPH, with a Lenco. But he came out of the hole peddle to the metal about 10,500 RPM's, it was an amazing car but it killed valve spring after about 50 passes. I have vids of the car if anyone would be intrested.
