Cheapest bet is to go with aftermkt rods. 6.535" long and use readily available 427 pistons. Don't forget manifold spacers or correct intake for that .400 taller block.

Next best bet is a 454 crank .400 long rods and 454 pistons.

After that you get expensive! Either custom length rods and/or pistons are required.

A tall deck in a chevelle might have issues with the headers hitting the upper control arm bolts....Just a heads up for you.

I think you are making a lot of extra work for your self. There is no advantage in using a tall deck block with a stock stroke. Several reasons not to use it. More weight, intake, distributer, exaust clearance. Better off using a short deck block.
