Smile Best Piston , rod combo , Cleveland block

Hi guys,

After some opinions.

Whats the best combo for longivety/less stress out of the 2 options listed below:


1: 3.750 Forged Crank , 6.125 H beam Rod, SRP +30 Forged piston 1.20 Comp height, and zero deck or

2: 3.750 Forged Crank , 6.00 H Beam Rod, SRP + 30 Forged piston 1.315 Comp Height, and zero deck.

Top end would be 4v Closed chamber , 64cc , would give around 11.4:1 static with both combos.

Opinions much appreciated.\

Cheers

Spazz

4.00 stroke, 6" rod, 1.20 compression height piston.
This is the answer to your heading of the topic.

But the answer to your question inside the thread is a tough one. The longer rod is good, at the expense of a shorter piston. I don't really go for all the "rod ratio" crap, so i just jammed in all the cubes i could get inside a 9.2 block.
2 years on, and the 4" stroke jobbie is running like a dream.
