The only thing I don't like about 6 inch rods is the oil ring runs through the pin boss on 383 stroke pistons for 6" rods, I've heard of oil control issues, but never experienced it, I use 5.7 rods in my blower motors. Any gains from rod ratio between the two rod lengths is miniscule, you'll find two schools of thought on that one. JMO
