350 6.125" rods

Are there any clearance issues when using a 6.125" rod in a 350? I will be using a 3.48" stroke stock crank. Will the rods possibly hit the bottom of the cylinders?

If you're using the stock stroke I would say that you'll be fine.

I don't know why you'd want to do it as it puts your pin height way up there. I see no benefit, only drawbacks.
