I think 6 inch rods give you a better rod ratio. But 5.7 are more comon. And I don't think you will have to go forged unless you do nos of forced induction, and that will help your budget alot. And you will have to balence the rotating assembaly no matter what if you want any kind of performance. You don't want to build a shaker. Also you maybe able to get away with the highest octane street gas if you go with alluminum heads cause you can go a little higher in compression but not much. But that is pushing it. I had a friend who did it and it worked... But Im sure he's the exception not the rule.
