        If it is your dream to build a 5 liter SBM engine for the street and or track you should do it, I would love to see it done. They were some great very successful 5 litre engines like the Z28 and Boss 302. The TransAm series is rich in our history.
        If you cant follow dreams life is going to be very dull.

          Mom always said, “Don’t settle when you can afford it otherwise it will just turn into regret.” You only live on this planet once, so enjoy it! Have fun and make it as exciting as you can.

              wish i could find the pic of the engine , had a low rise crossram intake , i wanted to buy it but no way they would sell . sounded mean as could be . hope the OP uilds his dream , if i had a few more $$ i'd build a Ritter alu block and destroke it so i could run 9000 + rpm , no way a stock block valvetrain can hit 9000 unless you are a rocket scientist like ohyeah

                The other short stroke crank for an LA motor is the forged crank from a 301 ci Poly motor. It's a bolt in except that it has the 8 bolt Hemi crank bolt pattern so an easy swap with a hemi flex plate.

                  You mean where the torque converter or flywheel bolt up? There are different dimensions for what’s bolted to it.
                  I forget, I don’t remember exactly what it is.

                    The crank flange is farther back because the torque convertor had studs that went forward through the flange.
