Nice to know.
Well in my old Chevy days at my dad's old shop we build 372ci small blocks(350 crank in a 400 block) with 6" rods had a rev limit of around 8700 or so. The new LS motors in the Chevy's have a long rod setup in a way, they basically are made with smaller bores but a longer stroke and longer rods and they rev pretty darn far. Alot of old schoolers have used long rods in dirt track motors for years. Even the bike and ATV guys are using them with great outcomes. Man I hope i'm not getting to off topic with all my babbling. Hope people are learning from this also...

Well I get to talking cars and the next thing you know it's Christmas time again...

Maybe I should just start a thread for discussions on rod length, bore and strokes and how they effect engine power output both pros and cons...

And that is all some people really know. Well once I get home from work I will start a thread about these topics and go into more detail than what I can here.
