Can you use a 2 pc crank in a 1 pc block??

I found a scat 9000 3.8 stroke crank (388) but it's for a 2 piece rear main. Can I use it in my 1 piece block?

i dont think so. I am building a 355 right now on an 87 block which is a 1 pc and the speed shop ordered a 2 pc by mistake and i had to return it so they could get me the right one. Their might be a way to do but not that i know of.

Yeah you can use a 2pc. crank in a 1pc. block, but you have to get an adapter. I know Chevrolet makes them, I think Moroso does also. Summit or Jegs should have them. They are not very cheap either.
