304 to a 360 stroker?

Can a stock 304 block take a 360 crank? The new owner of my CJ5 would like to really push the horsepower.

thanks

no the cranks have the same stroke, try a 401 if you can find one

The 401 will go in the block? Is the same black used for the 304, 360, and 401?
thanks

Re: 304 to a 360 stroker?

its not the EXACT same block, you cant bore a 304 to be a 401, but the blocks are the sme externally.

if you need more engine just find a 360, that will be cheaper than trying to stroke or hop up a 304, or you can go ahead buy bolt on parts for the 304, ( aluminum intake, carb) and then swap all of that to a 360 when you find one.
