No such thing as a 854 turning 5500 lazily!! That is completly absurd! Try it!!! C'mon!
"The TD production truck block doesn't fit a bigger stroke, it has 'room' for longer rods."
Where the heck did you hear that?
What makes you think that??? What does that even mean? It isn't making sense to me.
It is the same bottom end as a short deck only with more cylinder height on the top! Theoretically it could allow for even more stroke than a short deck with same rods!!! If you really wanted a super long stroke motor without dishing out serious dough for a extra tall deck merlin block what other choice is there than a 427 truck block with 10.2 deck? C'mon you guys.... You can do better than that... hehe
