bore & stroke it

I have a local speed shop that would like to build a 426ci from a 5.7. with a one off crank, rods, pistons, etc. he would do all the labor if I pay for the parts. My problem is I can't find a blowed up 5.7. This is good but not for this project. I even call my Chrysler rep. with no luck. If any of you here of a bad motor cheap please e-mail me. thanks Jim

Don't think it can be done by any practical means. The safe overbore on the motor is .030, for a 3.950 bore size. That means the crank would have to be an 1 inch stroker or 4.350. That would be quite an undertaking, if it is even possible.
