Re: Chev Rods
yep, the comments here are all correct. when i got longer rods for mine, cheap cranks were still not an option, so i stuck with standard stroke.
If you are looking for best bang for your buck, then stroking is definately the way to go. Reading all of the other posts in here, you'll find that a capacity of over 400 cubes is achievable with the right setup.
If you are looking to retain the stock stroke, then 6.250 inches of rod length is about the maximum you can go. It will still require custom pistons, and the oil ring with probably need supports as the ring will be so low on the short skirt.
